District Court

Kandiyohi County

- Jennifer Courtney Weilage, 29, of Willmar pleaded guilty Monday to a misdemeanor charge of domestic assault.

As part of a plea agreement, a felony charge of domestic assault by strangulation will be dismissed. She will be sentenced Aug. 26.

The charges were filed after a man reported to Willmar Police on Feb. 28 that he had been assaulted at the apartment he shared with Weilage on Seventh Street Northwest.

The man said that Weilage slapped him repeatedly and choked him with her arms around his neck until he lost consciousness. When he came to, he found himself lying on the floor. Weilage continued to hit and push him, shoving him into the kitchen stove and banging his head on a cabinet door. The victim sustained a black eye and had red marks around his throat and blood around his collar, on his arms and on his chest.
