The woman, who lived with Vigil at the residence along County Road C003, told police Vigil had struck her in the face during a quarrel in the early morning hours of Jan. 18, then placed her in a chokehold. According to an arrest affidavit, when the victim made attempts to leave the home, Vigil tightened his grip on her neck.
