DOVER, N.H. - A Rochester woman has been indicted in a strangulation assault against a domestic partner back in October.
Andrea Dalton, 27, of 11 Sheridan Ave., faces up to seven years in state prison if found guilty of the second degree assault (domestic violence) charge, a Class B felony.
Court documents reveal Dalton "engaged in the strangulation of" the victim by "applying pressure to (his) neck that caused him to experience impeded breathing or blood circulation or a change of voice."
The incident occurred in Rochester on Oct 12.
Dalton also faces up to a $4,000 fine if convicted.
The Strafford County grand jury indictments were handed down earlier this month and released on Tuesday.
An indictment is not an indication of guilt, only that enough evidence has been gathered to warrant a trial.
