A man has appeared in court accused of assaulting and threatening to kill the mother of his three children.
Sean Logue, 41, from Northland Road in Londonderry, denies carrying out the attack in the woman's home in Cooke Street on 28 and 29 December.
A prosecution solicitor said the defendant headbutted her and grabbed her by the throat with such force that she could not breathe.
Mr Logue was remanded in custody. The case was adjourned.
