The mother of porn star Christine Mackinday, known in the industry as “Christy Mack,” testified that she witnessed her daughter being abused and told her alleged attacker during his trial, “I wish I would have shot you.”

Erin Mackinday said that to “War Machine,” the MMA fighter formerly known as Jonathan Koppenhaver, who faces more than 30 counts related to what witnesses described as a series of attacks against Mack, Law Newz reported.

She started to testify on the sixth day of the trial. She described her daughter as quiet, loving, and smart child who also loved animals. She said War Machine seemed likable at first, but that she witnessed their relationship deteriorate and her daughter growing “darker and darker,” according to Law Newz.

Mackinday described “screaming and fighting” between her daughter and War Machine. She testified that she ran to her daughter, who was hysterical and screaming.

“All of a sudden, all hell broke loose. He grabbed me by the neck and dragged me upstairs,” Mackinday recalled her daughter saying. She remembered seeing red marks on her daughter’s neck.

She said the assault continued into that night, and later she testified that she had a phone call with War Machine afterward.

“We got into a fight and I had to beat her up,” Mackinday said War Machine told her on the phone on August 8, 2014. The spat left her daughter with 18 broken bones, a broken nose, missing teeth, a fractured rib, and a ruptured liver.

Mackinday described a frantic race to her daughter’s house.

“My thought was, ‘She’s dead,'” Mackinday said.

When she arrived, police would only tell her that Mack was in the hospital.

After providing more testimony, Mackinday looked straight at War Machine and said twice, “I wish I would have shot you.”
