Here's the Charlotte Observer's account of what Hardy did, according to the victim's testimony under oath. Hardy ... flung her from the bed, threw her into a bathtub, then tossed her on a futon covered with rifles. ... [He] ripped a necklace he had given her off her neck, threw it into a toilet and slammed the lid on her arm when she tried to fish it out. The 6-foot-4, 265-pound Hardy dragged her by the hair room to room, she said, before putting his hands around her throat. 'He looked me in my eyes and he told me he was going to kill me,' [she] said.
