On one occasion in August 2013, according to the protection order documents, he allegedly took painkillers and anxiety medication and shot himself in the leg at his parents' house.He then pointed the gun at his family and told them not to call police.Elkhaliny chased after her, grabbed her by the hair and dragged her back to his home, punching and kicking her the whole way, she said.Elkhaliny's 8-year-old Rottweiler joined in too, ripping off Culp's sweatpants and biting her legs.
The prosecuting attorney in the trial, Michael Gordon, could not be reached to comment on the trial and how Elkhaliny was able to receive the sentence he did, given the facts of the case. Two of Elkhaliny's earliest victims were his now estranged wife of more than 10 years and his daughter, according to court documents.
Once they pulled into his parents' driveway around 10 p.m., Elkhaliny shoved his finger into her eye, causing bleeding and "great pain," the police report states.
He left her in the garage to get bandages, and Culp took advantage of the opening and ran toward a neighbor's home.
With Elkhaliny's Rottweiler in close pursuit, Culp tossed the gun and slipped into a nearby home.
The homeowner told police that she came in around a.m.
