After an investigation, Justin LaFever, an 18-year-old Laramie resident, was arrested and charged with Strangulation of a Household Member. Bond has been set at $20,000.00 and LaFever remains incarcerated at the Albany County Detention Center.

  • Applying pressure on the throat or neck of the household member; or
  • Blocking the nose and mouth of the household member.
