Humphries and his girlfriend drove down to a Stevie Knicks concert in Ohio on August 5th. During the concert, they got into a fight and he left her there but eventually returned and picked her up.
They drove back up to Clio afterward and continued to fight that night. they argued the following day, and well into Sunday as well. On Sunday, the fight erupted and Humphries went out to the barn, grabbed one of the ducklings that he had bought for his girlfriend, and ripped its head off in front of her. He then grabbed her head and forced her to look at it.
