LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - A 30-year-old Laramie man has pleaded guilty to strangling a household member in an agreement that calls for the state to recommend he spend no more than a year in jail.

Jacob Borzea entered his guilty plea Wednesday in Albany County District Court. Judge Jeffrey Donnell said he would consider the plea deal, but there were no guarantees as to his sentence.

The woman reported the choking in June. Court records say Borzea acknowledged he put the woman in choke holds to calm her down.

Borzea was released from jail in July, but was re-arrested for breaking into the woman’s house the same day he was released. He has been jailed since then. Judge Donnell declined a request that Borzea be released from jail pending sentencing.
