Canton man indicted on strangulation charges


CANTON — A St. Lawrence County grand jury is accusing a Canton man of strangling his ex-girlfriend in an indictment handed up Thursday.

Joshua D. Holder, 33, of 29 E. Main St., is charged with felony second-degree strangulation.

The indictment alleges that on June 10, Mr. Holder applied pressure to Christina Mann’s throat, cutting off circulation and preventing her from breathing. Village police allege that Ms. Mann was living with Mr. Holder, her then boyfriend, when they got into an argument and he started to choke her.

Police arrested Mr. Holder at his residence at the time of the incident and originally also charged him with second-degree unlawful imprisonment and third-degree assault.

Mr. Holder was taken to St. Lawrence County jail on $3,000 cash bail or $6,000 bond. He has since been released and is to appear in St. Lawrence County Court at a later date.
