NORTH PLATTE, Neb. — A Sutherland man is in custody after being accused of choking his wife on Monday.
Lincoln County Attorney Jerome Kramer said Jeremy Kreiling, 25, strangled his wife at their home north of Sutherland and threatened her while holding a rifle.
When deputies arrived at the house, the victim had a difficult time talking and told investigators she was dizzy and disoriented, Kramer said.
Kreiling was arrested on suspicion of strangulation, a felony, and third-degree domestic assault, a misdemeanor. He was being held at the Lincoln County Detention Center.
Kramer said Kreiling was out of jail after posting bond on $500,000 bail on a charge of first-degree sexual assault of a child. He was charged in that case on Nov. 9, 2011. According to Kramer, a 13-year-old girl told interviewers with the Bridge of Hope Child Advocacy Center that Kreiling assaulted her at his home while she was baby-sitting.
He failed to show up for his arraignment in that case on Dec. 3.
