WINDOM — A Windom man has been charged with a count of domestic assault by strangulation, a felony-level offense that carries a maximum sentence of three years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Both men received amended sentences after pleading guilty.
The July 2021 collision involved a pickup truck and semi-truck, whose driver reportedly ran a stop sign.
Victim of reported domestic assault lost consciousness twice after police arrived.

Windom police officers were dispatched to a Ninth Street residence on June 25, following a report of suicidal comments. Upon arrival, officers spoke with Anthony Miller, 27, who stated he and the victim had gotten into an argument over a motorcycle. Miller said the victim believed the bike was unsafe and had become upset when Miller said he planned to ride it anyway. He stated the victim then called the police, and that nothing physical had happened.

Officers noted in the criminal complaint an odor of alcohol coming from Miller at the time.

The victim told the officer she and Miller had been drinking and gotten into an argument. At one point, the argument got rough and the victim called her stepfather to come to the house. Once things cooled down, the stepfather left again and Miller asked the victim for a hug. The victim refused and Miller reportedly got on top of the victim and strangled her.

The officer observed marks around the victim's neck. Injuries, including an abrasion and red mark on the victim’s neck, were photographed.


Miller was detained in Cottonwood County. He is scheduled to make his initial court appearance July 12.
