Jim Breaks has been charged with the crime.
Retired British wrestler Jim Breaks has been charged with the 2017 murder of his ex-girlfriend Donna Cowley. Various outlets in the United Kingdom have reported the news including the Daily Mail and The Mirror. Breaks has been warned that prosecutors are calling for him to be put in prison for fifteen years when he goes on trail for the murder and he is currently 80 years old. Breaks' ex-girlfriend, Donna Cowley passed away after Breaks punched her in the face and body and smashed a cup over her head during an argument according to prosecutors.
Cowley called the authorities after the incident but unfortunately passed away the following day in the hospital. Prosecutors are arguing that Breaks abandoned Cowley in the bathroom of a holiday resort in Puerto Rico.
Breaks was said to have confessed to assaulting Donna during a court quiz hosted by a judge after he was arrested for the initial incident and informed the judge that she acted as if she was his caretaker opposed to acting like they were dating. As of this writing, no date has been set for Breaks' trail and there is no definite word on if he is planning on pleading guilty or fighting the case.
Jim Breaks was known as "Cry Baby" during his time as an in-ring performer and held the British Lightweight Championship from 1963 to 1967. He was regularly featured on ITV and went on to win the aforementioned title nine more times after he lost it.
