A Fort Drum man who allegedly punched his wife in the face several times and choked her was jailed Sunday under $1,000 bail.
Joseph I. Dukes, 27, is charged with criminal obstruction of breathing and blood circulation, harassment and driving without a license.
He was arraigned before LeRay Town Justice George E. Mead III and sent to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building.
