New charges, same victim in Norwich domestic violence case
A Norwich man who was on probation for a domestic violence conviction has been charged with violating the terms of his release following two new arrests involving the same female victim.
Kyle Ihloff, 25, has been held in lieu of $49,750 at the Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional Center since May 7, when the woman said Ihloff attempted to wrap a belt around her neck and strangle her, threatened to throw her out a window and placed her in a choke hold.
Charged with violation of probation as a result of the new arrest, Ihloff appeared this morning in New London Superior Court, where Judge Susan B. Handy appointed attorney Peter E. Scillieri from the public defender’s office to represent him and continued the case to Sept. 3.
According to his court file, Ihloff served 90 days in prison for assaulting and restraining the female victim and was put on probation for three years following his release in November 2011. Under the terms of his release, he was allowed to have contact with the victim but was prohibited from making threats or committing violence toward her.
Norwich Police charged Ihloff with disorderly conduct in February 2013 when he became angry during a conversation with the woman about the status of their relationship and refused to leave her apartment, according to his court file.
The couple was once again discussing the state of their relationship on May 6 when the woman said Ihloff had attempted to strangle her, then threw her face-down on the bed and threatened to throw her out the window. She told police she did not call until the next day because Ihloff stayed in her home the entire night. She said she was afraid of him and felt her life was in danger. The police reported she had multiple bruises on her neck and arms.
Police charged him with violation of a protective order, first-degree strangulation, second-degree strangulation, second-degree threatening, third-degree assault and disorderly conduct.
