L.A. Kings defenseman Slava Voynov will stand trial in March for a felony domestic violence charge, however a police report obtained by the L.A. Times alleges Voynov kicked and punched his wife during an argument between the two in October.
Slava Voynov allegedly told his wife “he wanted a divorce” and “there would be no more money” and repeatedly kicked her during an October altercation between the couple that led to a felony domestic violence charge against the Kings defenseman.
The details are part of a Redondo Beach Police report on the situation obtained by The Times through a public records request.
Voynov has pleaded not guilty to the charge and faces a March 2 trial in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Marta Varlamova, Voynov’s wife, told police the couple started arguing during a Halloween party. Voynov removed her costume glasses and stomped on them, then, outside the venue, he punched her in the left jaw, according to the report.
At his arraignment in December, Voynov plead not guilty to the felony domestic violence charge, with the trial being set to begin March 2.
