“I want the maximum punishment and justice to be served,” the woman told The Indianapolis Star.   “I don’t want this to happen to any other girl. My voice can finally be heard,” said the woman whose name has not been released publicly.

Police say Lakhvir Singh, 28, routinely referred to his wife as b__tch. They say he also slapped and choked her and threatened to kill her.

But Singh’s lawyer continue to maintain the wife made the whole story up to get out of an arranged marriage.

“She was in a marriage where she did some things she didn’t want to do and tried to get out of it,” Jack Crawford said. “The blame here lies with the parents for forcing them both into a marriage they did not want.”
