“There was domination and control, a form of control that enabled physical, sexual, and economic abuse.
“She had to serve him, be it sexually or for housework.
“He considered her his wife and housekeeper.”
Rose-Marie Capitaine, the lawyer for the deceased’s parents, said at the hearing: “There was excess in him, but let’s not present him as an executioner, let’s avoid those excesses.”
