Felony domestic strangulation charge filed

Jay Paul Irvine Haverkamp, 27, of Box 434, Detroit Lakes has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony domestic assault by strangulation and misdemeanor domestic assault.

On March 10 he allegedly entered the workplace of a woman with whom he has a relationship and shares two children and angrily confronted her, according to court records.

He allegedly grew enraged when she wouldn't put down her cell phone or tell him who she had called, and he choked her, leaving her unable to talk or breathe. She fell to the floor, knocking over a garbage barrel.

A summons was issued March 25 by District Judge Peter Irvine ordering Haverkamp to appear in court April 7.
