The attorney revealed that after an “extensive investigation” police determined that she “was physically, verbally and psychologically abusive towards Mr Urtula during their 18-month-long tumultuous relationship”.
“The abuse became more frequent, more powerful and more demeaning in the days and hours leading up to Mr Urtula’s death,” the attorney said.
She said that the couple had exchanged more than 75,000 text messages in the two months prior to Mr Urtula’s death.
In her posts, Ms You’s urged Mr Urtula to “go kill himself” and “go die”, the attorney said.
She added that on 20 May Ms You “was tracking Mr Urtula’s location and went to the Renaissance garage” where he killed himself.
