On the night of the assault, in May of 2017, the couple went to a party with their other partner Rowan Ritchens.
Crimmins and Mr. Joyce became "really drunk" and were expelled from the party when Crimmins began to act aggressively towards their fellow guests.
They were caught fighting near Lisarow High School, where the police made them pass and Crimmins was heard to say: "Let's go back there and hit every c *** at the party."
Police said Crimmins and Joyce, who had known each other since high school, would fight when they were drunk but would never hit each other in the face.
Mr. Joyce's sister took the couple home and she heard her brother say that Crimmins had ruined his relationship with his girlfriend Ashleigh Robinson after how he performed at the party.
Crimmins was heard making threats and said: & # 39; Could face them both. I'll show you how hard I am.
