The case was brought into the court when the two decided to fight for the custody of their two kids. Bill was blamed by McPhilmy for physical torture while McPhilmy was accused of being an unfaithful lady. McPhilmy even stated in the court that she was once dragged down the stairs by her husband by her throat. This statement was even verified by the couple’s daughter Madeline.
