Leo DiCaprio Slashing Suspect to Face Trial

1/25/2010 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Leo DiCaprio A former model accused of attacking Leonardo DiCaprio has finally agreed to face the music -- five years after she allegedly slashed his face open with a drinking glass .. and fled the country.

The woman -- 39-year-old Aretha Wilson -- is accused of hitting DiCaprio in the face during a house party in the Hollywood Hills in 2005. The party was at the home of Rick Salomon -- Paris Hilton's sex tape partner.

Authorities claim Leo needed 17 stitches to close up his face and ear.

Wilson -- who had been arrested in L.A. and charged with assault with a deadly weapon -- fled the country after the alleged attack.

But Wilson was finally taken into custody in Ontario last week -- and has agreed to be extradited back to the U.S.

And get this -- a year after the DiCaprio incident, Wilson smashed a glass bottle over her ex-boyfriend's head and was convicted for that.

As for Leo, he's reportedly expected to testify in the case against Wilson.

TMZ, you may want to specify that Ontario is in Canada. Most of your readers are a little stupid and might not know this.

Hi TMZ,

I suggest that you include that:

Wyatt Cote, the 34 year old other victim died a few moments after the attack by Wilson, when he fell eight stories.

Leo does NOT need braces. That pic is of him talking, they took it in mid sentence you moron! Besides Leo has a side overbite. It takes serious jaw surgery to change that.Why should he do that? He is a beautful person as is. I bet you are not perfect. People do not need to be all hollywood clones and have perfect straight, exactly the same teeth you know. To the other idiot here, that woman is being charged because she seriously hurt another human being. It has nothing to do with the fact that she is a celeb. She had no idea who Leo was when she did it as she was aiming at another person. The cut was very close to his artery, he could have died. She has also hurt another person in a similar way. Clearly the woman is a threat to everyone's safety and needs to be in jail.

Some people seem to think Leo should just get over this or that she's being persecuted just because he's a big star. The lady almost slashed his freaking artery with a glass bottle, he could have bled to death after being cut in that area!!! What is wrong with people? Thank god Leo is a big star with lots of money and the means to pursue this so this crazy murderer WILL go to jail.
