KIM Cornwell had been drinking heavily before he got into a row with his wife and assaulted her, a court heard.
After slamming a glass of cider on to work top, he lunged at Angela Cornwell, grabbing her round the throat, causing scratches to her neck.
"He held her quite hard, she had trouble breathing," prosecutor Laura Mardell told Ely magistrates.
"He went to punch her, but she ducked and it did not connect. He threw cider over her. He was briefly shut out, but banged on the door and was let in because it was feared he would break the door down."
