Domestic Abuse Trial

A Coffee County jury heard graphic testimony on Wednesday in Elba, in the case of a woman charged with domestic violence.

Prosecutors say Russian National Nelya Stinson seriously injured her husband by biting him on 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 public school teacher in Troy and told the jury he did not immediately report the incident because he was afraid of his wife.

If convicted, Nelya Stinson could face one to 10 years in jail. She may also face deportation back to Russia.
