Janacek, who was intoxicated at the time, started to argue with the victim on July 30, 2015, when she returned to the home they shared, prosecutors said. He threw multiple objects at the woman before hitting her, throwing her onto a couch and choking her.
After finding him guilty, Kliment revoked bond for Janacek, who had previously been out on bond, prosecutors said.
