The niece of Britain's defense minister is on trial for slashing a French lover's throat in the midst of a kinky sex game. Jessica Davies, 30, claims she was in a "black out," high on alcohol and anti-depressants during the tragedy, and remembers nothing of the death in a Paris Left Bank apartment.

Psychiatrists have reported hat Davies was "disturbed" and in an "altered state" when the death occurred, reports the Telegraph.
