GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A Larimore man accused of choking the mother of his children has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder.

Twenty-three-year-old Kermit Dumarce on Tuesday also pleaded not guilty to terrorizing and three misdemeanor counts of violating a no-contact order.

Prosecutors say Dumarce threatened to kill his children's mother as he choked her until she passed out at their Larimore home, causing her to vomit blood and seek medical treatment.

He is due back in court March 18.
