LA Kings' Voynov pleads no contest in domestic abuse case
By BRIAN MELLEY
TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) --- Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov has pleaded
no contest to a misdemeanor stemming from a domestic violence incident with his
wife after a Halloween party.
Voynov entered the plea Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court to a
count of corporal injury to a spouse. Lawyers said terms of the plea call for
three years of probation.
The Russian Olympian had been charged with corporal injury to a spouse with
great bodily injury after an argument at a party attended by other Kings
Prosecutors say Voynov choked and hit his wife and pushed her into a TV in
their Redondo Beach bedroom. A cut over her eye required eight stitches.
