A 38-year-old woman tells authorities the father of her children tried to strangle her, telling her he would kill her and saying, “I want you dead.”  A Juneau County Sheriff’s deputy arrested 40-year-old Jeremy Resler of Maustin.  Resler is accused of placing his hands around the woman’s throat during an attack this week.  Resler was apparently upset with the woman for not spending enough time with their children.  The two were no longer a couple, but they still lived together because neither could afford to move.  Their children, ages two and three, were present while the woman says Resler slammed her against the wall and put his hand around her throat.  Resler’s initial court appearance is scheduled for March 14th.
