STAMFORD, Conn., -- A man who only last month was freed from jail obviously didn't learn his lesson as his violent behavior toward his wife of less than a year on Aug. 13 landed him behind bars again, police said.
Everett Deshon Goethe, 33, 148 Stevens Road, Bridgeport, is charged with one count each of second-degree strangulation, second-degree threatening, first-degree harassment, second-degree breach of peace and two counts of violating a restraining order.
Goethe and his 29-year-old wife were married in January after a relationship that began around 14 years ago, police said.He had been released from jail on July 24 after being incarcerated since May 13. His probation expires in 2020.
On Aug. 13, his wife who lives in Norwalk had rented a car and picked her husband up in Stamford. He wanted to drive the car, but she refused because he had been drinking, police said.
"So he started to yell, 'You are going to listen to me,' and he started to choke her," Sgt. Kelly Connelly said.
She parked the car, and as they walked downtown, the man allegedly continued to verbally assault her until she decided to leave without him.
The woman didn't go to police until after he had called her on Sunday and repeatedly insulted her, adding that if she called police, he would kill her.
Stamford police prepared a warrant on him, and he was taken into custody in Bridgeport on Wednesday.
His bond was set at $75,000, and he was scheduled to appear in Stamford court on Thursday.
