Man charged with strangulation


After a

woman called 911 during a domestic dispute,

a Marbleton man faces two felonies

and a misdemeanor for domestic battery.

Trevor P. Andrus, who remains in custody,

had his preliminary hearing in Circuit

Court on Tuesday, April 9, at 1 p.m.

Andrus is charged with the felonies of

strangling a household member and felonious

restraint, as well as the misdemeanor

of domestic battery, after he reportedly was

brought home drunk from a local bar late

on March 27 and argued with a household

member, according to court records.

The woman said they argued and reportedly

Andrus tried to strangle her several

times, stated Detective Travis Lanning in a

court affidavit.

The woman ran into another room with

her children and called 911, it stated. Andrus

denied that he was drunk and said the

woman threw him down, according to the

report.

The maximum penalties for all three

charges would be 15 years, six months in

prison and $20,750 in fines.
