SAND SPRINGS, Okla. - A man is facing a strangulation charge after an altercation with his wife, who claims he stole her teeth and assaulted her.
On Jan. 11, deputies responded to a Sand Springs home where a woman said her husband, Garry Hill, got into a verbal argument about money "and his insecurity," which escalated to Hill hitting and choking her "to the point she could not breathe," according to the arrest report.
The victim told deputies she took $2,000 from her husband and placed it in her shoe so he couldn't find it.
During the assault, the victim said her husband put his foot on her throat, cutting off her airway, and took her teeth out of her mouth, refusing to give them or her cellphone back.
According to the report, Hill took his wife to her mother's house where she called deputies.
Upon arrival, officers witnessed red marks and bruising on the victim's neck and arms along with a bloody scratch on her wrist, bruising around her mouth and blood inside her mouth, according to the report.
Hill was arrested for domestic assault and battery by strangulation. After posting $10,000 bond, Hill was released Sunday afternoon.
