SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Prosecutors have charged a Salt Lake City man with attempted murder for allegedly trying to strangle a woman last week.
Antonio Shropshire, 25, was charged Monday with first-degree felony attempted murder.
Prosecutors say Shropshire and the woman were in the same apartment Oct. 28, when he kicked her in the face and squeezed her around the neck, threatening to kill her.
The woman says Shropshire made remarks about her ex-boyfriend, whom she claims shot Shropshire in July.
The woman eventually passed out and woke later in her vehicle.
The charge carries a penalty of up to life in prison.
