Bronx state senator accused of choking wife slapped with court order of protection
Bronx state Sen. Luis Sepulveda turned himself in to police Tuesday after being accused of choking his estranged wife.
Police sources tell News 12 that Sepulveda and his estranged wife were fighting inside their home.
Both filed prior complaints on Saturday against each other. Sepulveda met with a judge for a virtual arraignment Tuesday evening, and a court order of protection was served against him.
The state senator was ordered not to have any communication, whether in person or virtually, with his wife unless they are both appearing in court.
Sepulveda faces a charge of criminal obstruction of breathing.
