Another Felony Arrest Occurred in Laramie
On November 15 around 6 pm, Laramie Police Officers were dispatched to a report of a domestic disturbance in the 1400 block of Thaxton Court.
After the investigation, 43-year-old Ricci Amaro was arrested and charged with Strangulation of a Household Member.
According to Wyoming Statute 6-2-509, a person is guilty of strangulation of a household member if he intentionally and knowingly or recklessly causes or attempts to cause bodily injury to a household member by impeding the normal breathing or circulation of blood by applying pressure on the throat or neck of the household member; or blocking the nose and mouth of the household member.
Strangulation of a household member is a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than ten years.
These are merely accusations and the Defendant is presumed innocent until and unless convicted in a court of law.
