War Machine found guilty on 29 charges

A Clark Country jury has found Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver guilty on 29 of the 34 charges he faced in connection with the brutal assault on his former girlfriend Christy Mack and Corey Thomas in August of 2014.

The ex-MMA fighter broke into Mack’s home and began to beat both victims, concentrating the brunt of his attack on his ex-girlfriend, leaving her with a list of injuries such as a punctured lung, a ruptured liver, broken teeth, multiple broken bones and more. He then fled authorities for several days, ultimately being found and arrested in California.

Charges ranged from burglary to sexual assault and attempted murder. The jury could not reach a verdict on the attempted murder charge and in three other charges was found not guilty.

Sentencing will be held on June 5.
