Woman accused of assaulting husband

A Hitterdal woman accused of assaulting her husband by strangulation made her first court appearance in the Becker Court.

Ivette Lliana Sandal, 36, is charged with felony domestic assault by strangulation and two other misdemeanors of domestic assault.

Sandal was arrested May 29 after police say a verbal fight at a residence along county road 157 turned physical when she allegedly started scratching him and putting her hand and forearms to his throat, trying to choke him. She also allegedly threatened his life.

Responding officers found scratches and redness around the victim’s neck. She has been ordered no contact with the victim until her next court appearance June 23.
