Police say Anderson, who has been married for approximately five years, shares a child with his wife, and lives separately from her as if divorced, told them that his wife came over to his place and started becoming verbally aggressive and accusing him of cheating.

She then reportedly tried to grab a vape off of the desk where he was sitting and, in the process, broke his glasses and tried to punch him.

Anderson told police he physically picked her up, took her outside to the front porch, and set her down.

Police say Anderson's wife claimed that he strangled her and pushed her down the stairs that lead into his home from the outside.

Police say she had visible injuries around her neck and on her leg and foot.
