I'm sure he personally emptied the bottle before the incident, hence the violence.

Thirty-three years old. Bashing women's heads in with bottles. Thinking the woods was a good option. Should I continue? Twenty years in prison for this loser. It's not like he's going to be finding a cure for cancer. Get him outta here....
