A Warsaw man is in jail and accused of strangling his girlfriend.

Cody Lee Freeman, 23, of 3100 Frontage Road, #84, Warsaw, was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail at 8:06 p.m. Sunday and faces a Level 6 felony strangulation charge and a Class A misdemeanor domestic battery charge.

According to the probable cause affidavit filed Thursday in Kosciusko Superior Court III, on Dec. 29 Warsaw police responded to a domestic battery report and spoke with a woman who said she lives with Freeman and they had gotten into an argument.

The woman told police she locked herself in the bedroom because she was upset, and that Freeman forced entry into the bedroom, began throwing things around the room and then strangled her.

Police observed marks on the woman’s neck that fit her story, according to court papers.

No bond was set for Freeman.
