Khumoyun Ermatov, 33, of Algonquin.

A judge found an Algonquin man guilty of attacking his wife and strangling her after they began arguing over a television in their home in Algonquin.

Khumoyun Ermatov, 33, of Algonquin, was charged in June 2022 with aggravated domestic battery and two counts of domestic battery.

The Algonquin Police Department responded on June 11, 2022, to Ermatov’s residence in the 4600 block of Whitehall Court for a domestic disturbance.

Prosecutors said officers met with the victim, Ermatov’s wife, who told officers that she and her husband had been involved in an argument.

The two were arguing over a television in their bedroom.

Ermatov grabbed the woman during the argument and pushed her onto their bed, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said Ermatov strangled his wife while they were on the bed, causing her to feel dizzy and suffer from shortness of breath.
