Laramie Man Found Guilty of Strangulation

Eldridge Bell,II/Townsquare Media

A Laramie man accused of strangulation of a household member was convicted of the charge in Albany County District Court today.

A jury found Buddy E. Curby, 45, guilty of the charge, after deliberating for a little over an hour.

Curby could face a maximum sentence of up to five years in prison. District Court Judge Tori Kricken will set a sentencing date upon completion of the presentence investigation.

According to court documents, Laramie Police arrested Curby after receiving a call about a disturbance on West Baker Street in Laramie. The officer responded to the scene and interviewed the victim, Curby’s girlfriend, who was bleeding from her nose and mouth.

The victim told the officer that she and Curby had gotten into a fight over Curby’s supposed infidelity, during which Curby held the victim down and pressed a forearm to her throat. The victim said Curby dragged her into the kitchen by her hair, where he head-butted her face and caused her teeth to fall out and cut the inside of her mouth. The victim said Curby then dragged her into the bathroom and threw her in the bathtub and choked her until she lost consciousness.

Curby did not testify during the course of the three day trial.
