Christy Mack posted photos on Instagram last week updating her fans as to her recovery after being brutally beaten, allegedly at the hands of ex-boyfriend and MMA fighter War Machine. Just a few days later, War Machine attempted suicide in his jail cell.

Mack suffered 18 broken bones around her eyes, a broken nose, several broken teeth, a broken rib, and a ruptured liver in the attack, which reportedly occurred after War Machine paid a visit to her home while she was there with a friend. War Machine, whose real name is Jonathan Koppenhaver, said later that he went there to propose to her.

Koppenhaver went on the run after the attack, but was arrested soon after and has been awaiting a hearing on charges of attempted murder, sexual assault, battery, coercion, preventing or dissuading a witness or victim from reporting a crime, and first-degree kidnapping resulting in substantial bodily harm. On Tuesday morning, he was found in his cell with a suicide note after an attempted hanging with a bed sheet.

Mack has reportedly been ready to testify against Koppenhaver at a hearing, but it is unclear what the timeline will be now that he's in medical isolation. She posted a new photo earlier this month showing the progress in her recovery, which is slow going due to severe injuries to her eye, nose, and mouth. The adult film actress says she was unable to chew or speak properly and was unable to see correctly out of one eye for several weeks after the assault.

Sometimes half of your temp teeth decide to fall out to match the rest of your face. Thanks to Dr. Motykie for fixing the damage to my nose, and Dr. Adam Lousignont of Las Vegas for the temp tooth fix... again. Left was Monday right is today. What a difference a few days makes! I'm starting to breathe out of my nose again and today I'm going to get my glasses. One day soon I'll be going to New York to see Dr. Toscano and get my permanent teeth.
