According to charging document, the woman told police she and Toner got in an argument the night before and he kicked her out. She returned early in the morning and Toner woke up. They argued and he told her to leave again. She asked for the car keys because she had nowhere to go. Toner refused to give them to her and hit her in the mouth with his wrist. He then got on top of her and started strangling her to the point that she could not breath. The woman was able to bite one of Toner’s fingers, and he stopped strangling her.
