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.

Strangulation of a household member is a felony punishable by imprisonment for ten years.

As a result of the investigation, a 23-year-old Laramie resident Christopher Gorman was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault and Battery. Gorman was released from the Albany County Detention Center on a 10% of $10,000.00 bond.
