35 year-old Thomas Monaghan was charged with felony aggravated assault.

“From the reports we received, Mr. Monaghan physically assaulted his roommate by strangling her,” Lowney said. “She reported that she felt dizzy and light-headed and that she feared for her life while he was doing so. That’s the basis for the felony aggravated assault charge. We’re asking for bail to be set at $20,000.”

Judge Marie Anderson set bail at $$50,000 for Spencer, and $10,000 for Monaghan,

Both men are in the Missoula County Jail.
