This bodybuilder beat his girlfriend within an inch of her life, and it was all caught on his home surveillance cameras.
Paul Bashi, 35, a bodybuilder from Michigan was remanded to jail and placed on $5 million bond after he allegedly attempted to kill his girlfriend, Kristina Perry, 22.
Perry was kicked 100 times, had hot wax from lit candles thrown at her, and repeatedly stabbed. She spent days in the hospital in a coma.
Video has emerged of the 40-minute attack from Bashi’s home surveillance camera.
The video shows Bashi looking at his girlfriend’s cell phone, and moments later she walked through the door. Bashi immediately runs toward her and hits her with various household items. He then punches, kicks, and throws things at Perry. He then leaves her on the floor and makes several trips in and out of the room returning with multiple knives and stabs her over 100 times.
The footage shows that hardly any words were exchanged between Bashi and Perry during the attack.
‘She’s just lying there,’ Mclean said. ‘Not fighting back or moving at all.’
Perry was found on the porch of the home by neighbors who called the police. She was rushed to the hospital and spend days in a coma.
Like many instances of domestic abuse, after her recovery, Perry pleaded for prosecutors to drop the charges because she didn’t want her boyfriend to go to jail
‘She told the judge she wanted the defendant out of jail, and told the judge that it was her fault this happened,’ Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith said.
The prosecutor said he was not surprised by Perry’s request.
‘Our office handles about 2,500 domestic violence cases a year,’ he said.
‘Of those cases 60 per cent of the victims either recant their story or don’t show up to the court at all.
‘The defendant puts pressure on the victim to dismiss the charges.

‘This video, as awful as it is, thank God we have it,’ Smith said.
Smith said he wanted this case to serve as an example to the public. He is urging witnesses to come forward and report abuse even if the person being abused is unwilling to do so.
‘If you see someone going through this and you think someone is going through this, even though they say they are not – they are afraid to come forward,’ Smith said.
‘You have got to step in and help.’
Police who investigated the home found a controlled steroid in the house.
Prosecutors believe Bashi’s lawyers will use that to claim the attack was fueled by ‘roid rage.’

Domestic abuse is horrific.
Raise your girls to not put up with that kind of crap, and to step up if they know someone who is.
If you see something, say something.
It could be a matter of life and death.
