CHAMBERSBURG — A local man accused of strangling another person and pushing her into a glass window last week is free on $100,000 unsecured bail while awaiting a preliminary hearing on charges of strangulation, assault, and harassment.

Kyai Li Cherokee William’s, 28, is scheduled to appear in Franklin County Central Court at 1 p.m. May 21 to answer to the charges.

The strangulation charge is a second-degree felony. Simple assault is a second-degree misdemeanor. The harassment is a summary offense.

William’s victim came to the local police station at 10:02 p.m. May 8 to report the domestic violence incident, according to a police report.

Police said the victim had been choked, then hit in the head and pushed against a glass window, causing the glass to break.

William’s was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Annie Gomez Shockey, who set his bail at $100,000. An unsecured bail requirement usually means the defendant is released without having to put up cash or security.

A records department officer at Franklin County Jail said there was no record of Williams being at the jail this month.
