Jury finds War Machine guilty of 29 charges in beating of porn actress ex-girlfriend

War Machine was found guilty on a total of 29 out of 34 felony charges. He could face up to life in prison.

The verdict ends a two-week trial for the 35-year-old, who legally changed his name to War Machine during his time as an MMA fighter but went by his birth name in court.

Defense attorney Jay Leiderman had conceded Koppenhaver's guilt on eight lesser domestic battery charges, including punching and injuring ex-girlfriend Christy Mack.

Adult actress Christy Mack and her friend Corey Thomas were both beaten in the 2014 attack.

Castelan and Faith Jessie reported the jury found him not guilty on charges of "burglary with use of a deadly weapon, sexually motivated coercion, battery with intent to commit sexual assault, and sexual assault with use of a deadly weapon resulting in substantial bodily harm".

As the verdict was read, War Machine was seen shaking his head in the courtroom.

The jury came back deadlocked on 2 counts of attempted murder in the 2014 brutal beating of Mack and a male friend who was in her apartment the day of the attack.

The Associated Press doesn't usually identify victims of alleged sexual assault, but Mack gave permission to use her name.

Former UFC fighter War Machine aka Jon Koppenhaver, was found guilty on more than two-dozen charges in connection with an assault on his ex-girlfriend Christy Mackinday and her friend stemming from his arrest in 2014.

A court official says the jury resumed work Monday morning.
