A northern Idaho man who choked his girlfriend until she lost consciousness has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for that crime and 10 more years after being deemed a habitual offender.
Kenneth Edward Schleining, 38, of Coeur d'Alene was sentenced Monday in 1st District Court.
Schleining admitted to choking his girlfriend in September until she became unconscious.
Schleining has a long criminal record, including slitting the throat of another girlfriend, unlawful sexual activity with a minor, and violating a no-contact order.
