Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy was in a North Carolina courtroom on Tuesday where he pleaded not guilty to charges of communicating threats and assaulting a female.

Hardy was charged following an incident in May where he got into an altercation with his girlfriend, Nicole Holder.

Holder was in court on Tuesday giving testimony and during her time on the stand, she said Hardy threatened to kill her.

"He looked me in my eyes and he told me he was going to kill me. I had never been so scared in my life," Holder said, via the Charlotte Observer. "I was so scared I wanted to die. When he loosened his grip slightly I said just, 'Do it. Kill me.'"

During her testimony, Holder admitted to using cocaine on the night of the incident.
