Bundy had challened Jaynes’ ex to a fight for saying disrespectful things about her, and ‘hit him in the jaw twice’.

During his sentencing, Judge Randall Rodgers ordered him to marry her as part of a probation agreement or go to jail.

“You know, as a part of my probation, you’re going to have to marry her…within 30 days,” Judge Randall said.

Bundy’s probation also includes writing out bible verses and counseling.
