Stinson Trial Gets Underway

In Elba, a 12-member Coffee County jury heard graphic testimony in the case of a woman charged with domestic violence.

Some of the details of this story may be disturbing: prosecutors say Russian National Nelya Volkova Stinson seriously injured her husband by biting his genitals.

It reportedly happened at the couple's home in the Zion Chapel community.

The reported victim, 49-year-old Wayne Stinson, testified that he bled severely after the incident.

Stinson is a long time public school teacher in Troy, and he told the jury that he didn't immediately report the incident because he was in fear of his wife.

If convicted, the defendant could face a jail term from one to 10 years. She may also face deportation out of the United States.
