Frazee man accused of choking live-in girlfriend

Earl McCanery III, 28, of 109 Oak Ave., Frazee has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony domestic assault by strangulation.

According to court records:

On Tuesday, he allegedly choked his live-in girlfriend during an argument, grabbing her by the throat and holding her so that she could not breath or scream. She thought he was going to kill her.

She told officers they had been involved in domestic assaults before, but never to that extent.

His blood alcohol level allegedly tested at .11 percent.

He appeared Thursday before District Judge Lisa Borgen, who set cash bail at $1,500 or bond at $15,000. His next court appearance is Oct. 5.
