Case File: King Teleutas vs. Ajax

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (King Teleutas) accuses Defendant (Ajax) of murder, theft, and sexual assault. During the Trojan War, Ajax led an attack on Phrygia, killing tons of people including King Teleutas. Ajax and his men took a bunch of valuables when they left. Tecmessa, the king's daughter, went to Ajax, becoming his personal love slave.

Case Status: Case dismissed. This kind of thing happened in war all the time back then. Not a lot to do about it, really. Later on, Ajax married Tecmessa, and they seemed to fall in love. She even tried really hard to keep him from killing himself, and she did a ton of mourning when he died.
