An Australian rugby star says he nearly lost his life after losing 2.5 liters of blood when he slashed himself while punching a window after catching his fiancée performing a sex act on his teammate.
Also helping matters was his former fiancee Kara Childerhouse declining t testify against him.
29-year-old Michael Lichaa detailed how the ugly incident forced him to change his life for the better. After waking up to find Childerhouse in his backyard performing a sexual act on his former Bulldogs teammate Adam Elliott, he flew into a rage, the court was told.
While in a state of shock, he began cursing up a storm, running insde where he punched the glass window on his front door, cutting his arm badly as he pulled it from the frame. Concerned neighbors, who reported hearing a man scream “I’m going to f–king kill her”, called police. In the aftermath, he was charged with domestic violence charges after Childerhouse accused him of assaulting her.
“I couldn’t get the image of my fiancée performing oral sex on my best friend out of my mind,” Lichaa told the court on Friday.
“I’m glad the truth finally came out; I was very confident in the truth the whole time,” Lichaa told NCA NewsWire outside court on Friday as he thanked his legal team, family and new fiancee.
“But I just want to put it all behind me now and move on with my life and happy days ahead.”
Despite being subpoenaed and midway through her testimony, police were unable to contact his former fiancee after knocking on her door and calling her. The court heard that she no longer wanted to take part in the proceedings and was pregnant and worried about the stress of reliving the incident.
All of her testimony which she had given up until that point was excluded though a statement, in which she retracted the allegations, was admitted into evidence. It left the prosecution with no evidence to tender on the assault charge.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
