Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • Under familiar principles of appellate review, courts examine the evidence in the light most favorable to the Commonwealth, granting to it all reasonable inferences fairly deducible therefrom. The fact finder is not required to believe all aspects of a witness’s testimony; it may accept some parts as believable and reject other parts as implausible.
  • While engaging in sexual relations is a factor in determining cohabitation, “matrimonial cohabitation” consists of more than sexual relations. It also imports the continuing condition of living together and carrying out the mutual responsibilities of the marital relationship.
  • In Virginia, the legislature has concluded that assault on a family or household member is more serious than assault on a stranger. Va. Code Ann. §§ 18.2-57, 18.2-57.2.
