A man was arrested after he admitted to strangling his girlfriend during rough sex.
Toby Nicholas Clarke of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, was arrested in the death of his girlfriend.
Brooklyn Park police were called to a home around 3:00 a.m. on Wednesday, on a report of an unconscious woman. They arrived to find a woman who was not breathing and had no pulse.
Police said that the woman had injuries around her neck and arms. The woman was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead around 4:30 a.m., according to the criminal complaint.
The woman was identified as 36-year-old Krista Ambers. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner determined she died from strangulation.
According to police, Clarke, 37, said that he had been in an intimate relationship with the woman for the past three years. He said that he put his hands around her neck while having “rough sex.”
However, friends of Ambers told police that the woman was in an abusive relationship with Clarke and they had seen bruises on her neck multiple times before this incident.
Clarke, who is a convicted felon, has been charged with second-degree murder. If convicted, he faces up to 40 years in prison.
