She told him to stop biting her, and hit him. She says he then pulled her hair, and everything went black. Carter says the next thing she remembers is waking up naked on July 4th with bite marks all over her body, bruises on her legs, back, and torso, two black eyes, and a busted lip. Additionally, she had red marks on both sides of her neck/throat and it appears as if her air and blood flow had been restricted for a period of time.
