[CW: The following story contains reference to suspected femicide]
Former UFC and PRIDE veteran Phil Baroni was arrested in early January on suspicion of killing his girlfriend at the Jardin San Pancho Hotel in Bahia de Banderas, Mexico.
Reports on the ground claim that Baroni killed his girlfriend after an argument and that numerous injuries were observed on her body. Baroni has reportedly claimed that the woman died as a result of injuries she sustained from him pushing her into a bathtub.
Baroni has since been charged with aggravated femicide and faces the possibility of 75 years in prison if found guilty.
