Christy Martin’s Husband Found Guilty of Trying to Kill Her

by David P. Greisman

Jim Martin, the husband of famed female fighter Christy Martin, was guilty Friday of trying to kill her, according to Florida radio station WBDO.

Jurors convicted the 68-year-old man on charges of attempted second-degree murder, attempted voluntary manslaughter with a firearm, and aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, the radio station reported.

Jim Martin was accused of stabbing Christy Martin three times and then shooting her in November 2010.

Christy Martin, 43, survived the attack, recovered and returned to the ring in June 2011, losing via sixth-round stoppage to Dakota Stone due to a fractured right hand, according to BoxRec.com. The defeat dropped her record to 49-6-3 with 31 knockouts.

Jim Martin's sentencing hearing is scheduled for late June. He is facing up to 25 years in prison, according to The Orlando Sentinel.
