Dwight Henry was arrested and charged with assault occasioning bodily harm after he held down his female companion at their home and squeezed her neck, causing severe pain and swelling.
The court also heard that the complainant could not eat for days because of how swollen her throat was.
When he appeared in court, the complainant said that Henry attacked her after accusing her of cheating on him with the woman and that he was upset she had not told him of her secret woman on the side.
"He accused me, saying I was along with a lady and she and I was having relationship, and then attack me," she told the court.
Henry, however, did not deny her argument and pleaded guilty to the charge and was fined $15,000.
If the fine is not paid, he will serve six months in prison. He has since paid the fine and the matter was to be heard again, she has since removed out of the house reportedly and hopes that the case closes altogether so she can get on with her life
