Trial Begins For Man Accused of Shooting Christy Martin

by David P. Greisman

The trial of Jim Martin for allegedly stabbing and shooting his wife — famed female boxer Christy Martin — was set to begin today in Florida, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The 68-year-old man is facing charges of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated battery causing bodily harm, the newspaper said.

The alleged attack happened in November 2010. Jim Martin is accused of stabbing Christy Martin three times and then shooting her.

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.

It don't matter what money she blu or what female she love, no woman deserves this type of hate crime. Mr. Smooth needs to go to jail and get poked in the BU-TAY
