EVANSTON – On Aug. 20, William Manly of Lyman, entered a change of plea in Third District Court to two counts of strangulation. Manly was originally charged with four felonies but two of those, both alleging Manly committed robbery, were dismissed through a recommended plea agreement.

It was alleged Manly strangled his fiancé on Oct. 12 and again on Oct. 13, 2012 in a residence in Lyman.

“I’ve been waiting ten months for this,” Manly stated while waiting for proceedings to begin.

Manly pleaded guilty to two counts of strangulation of a household member and admitted to the crimes by stating, “I was frustrated with life and took it out on her. I choked her.”

The affidavit in court records stated Manly bent the victim’s hands, feet, legs and arms behind her causing soreness and bruising. Manly did not contest the facts presented.

Manly was sentenced to five years on one count and four to five years on another count with credit for 311 days served.

He was remanded to the state penitentiary in Rawlins for assignment to a prison facility to be determined.

Manly was also ordered to pay $275 attorney’s fees, $150 to the Crime Victim’s Fund, $10 indigent services and $10 in court automation fees.
