The case against prominent Nashville contractor David Chase was continued Thursday morning.
Chase, 37, was arrested for domestic assault last month. His case, however, created a firestorm of criticism after he was let out of jail before a 12-hour “cooling-off” period was complete.
After his early release, Chase allegedly returned to the Elliston Place apartment he previously shared with his ex-girlfriend where the woman was reportedly assaulted a second time.
The victim told a courtroom on June 19, that she “thought she was going to die” during the alleged attacks.
Last month Chase waived his preliminary hearing and his case was bound over to the grand jury.
Outside the courtroom Thursday, Chase’s attorney said there is much more to the story and they look forward to presenting that information at trial.
Chase’s next court date has not been decided.
