Kings defenseman Slava Voynov, charged with a felony count of corporal injury to spouse with great bodily injury, received a preliminary hearing today, and for the first time, prosecutors revealed some of the details of Voynov's alleged assault on his wife on Oct. 19. They're not pretty.

Los Angeles Times reporter Nathan Fenno and the Orange County Register's Rich Hammond are tweeting from Los Angeles County Superior Court in Torrance, Calif.:

Voynov's wife had requested that Voynov not be charged.

Upon his arrest, Voynov was immediately given an indefinite suspension by the NHL that barred him from taking part in any organized team activities. The Kings attempted to circumvent that earlier this month, sneaking Voynov into a team skate, and were fined $100,000 for it.

Also, back in November Kings GM Dean Lombardi said this, and it sounds worse and worse.

''Quite frankly, I'm beyond caring about reinstatement or cap relief,'' Lombardi said. ''My biggest concern is that if he is charged with a felony, this one incident could jeopardize Slava's entire career.''

If convicted, the 24-year-old Voynov could face up to nine years in prison, and the Russian national runs the risk of deportation.
