GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. (KXII) - It happened back in July 2017. Denison police were called to a home for a domestic disturbance.
"When they arrived at that disturbance they found that victim literally covered head to toe in blood," said Grayson County Assistant District Attorney Brett Smith.
The victim told investigators Justin Grant violently attacked her.
Smith said a lot of the victim's blood was lost, shown here on this towel and the victim's face was outlined in blood on this sheet.
"There was a small puncture wound to the victims face," said Smith. "The other use of the knife was threatening her with the knife while he was physically assaulting her."
Grant was arrested at a nearby home and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. During the investigation, Grant said he was high during the assault.
"Mr. Grant told us during the sentencing plea conferences at the time he was high on bath salts at the time," said Smith.
Grant has a history of domestic violence, including convictions in 2008 and 2010. He plead guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and was sentenced for 20 years.
Smith said the community is a lot safer with Grant off the streets.
"The images are fairly disturbing," said Smith. "That I think is the large motivation for Mr. Grant to plead guilty today to avoid having those images laid out in front of a jury."
