Chicago man gets 15-year sentence for choking ex-girlfriend

WHEATON, Ill. (AP) — A judge has given a Chicago man a 15-year prison term for choking his ex-girlfriend in her Naperville home in 2018 when he was on parole for murder.

The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reports DuPage County judge Brian Telander sentenced 48-year-old Michael Spivey Tuesday, calling it an “extremely violent attack.” The judge convicted Spivey of two counts of aggravated domestic battery during an April bench trial.

Prosecutors say Spivey went to the woman’s home when she wouldn’t answer his phone calls. They say he started choking her after she let him in when he threatened to damage her car. The woman’s son says he found her gasping for air as Spivey fled.

Spivey served 20 years of a 45-year sentence for a 1993 first-degree murder conviction in Cook County.
