Hockey professional Slava Voynov, who plays for the Los Angeles Kings, was charged for abusing his wife in their California house, an article by ESPN LA stated on December 15.
A judge and lead prosecutor in Los Angeles County reportedly stated that the domestic violence evidence against the 24-year-old hockey player was sufficient for the case to proceed. In an initial court hearing in Torrance, a police officer testified, describing how Voynov assaulted Marta Varlamova. Voynov ,who was arrested after the incident in October, was also suspended by the National Hockey League. A lawyer for Voynov said that his client is innocent of the charge. Varlamova also decided not to charge her husband. A court arraignment is scheduled for Voynov on December 29.
