BOISE -- A Boise man is in jail accused of trying to strangle his wife after an argument at an east Boise home Sunday night turned violent.
Officers were called to the home around 11:30 p.m. for a report of a battery.
The suspect, Kevin F. Romero, 35, of Boise, is charged with three felony counts of attempted strangulation and one felony count of domestic violence in the presence of a child, according to Ada County prosecutors.
Police say during the altercation Romero struck his wife several times and choked her, which caused her to lose consciousness. She was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Her injuries are said not to be life-threatening.
Romero was booked into the Ada County Jail on a probation violation.
During his arraignment Monday, the judge set bond at $2 million.
Ada County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Chris Atwood says each count of attempted strangulation carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison. The domestic violence charge is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
Romero is due back in court on April 30 for a preliminary hearing.
