TROTCHIE
MISSOULA, Mont. -

A Missoula man faces a felony aggravated assault charge for an alleged incident Wednesday night.

Court documents say Sage Reall Trotchie grabbed his girlfriend, shoved her against the wall and punched her in the face in a motel room after the two got into an argument. The woman also told police Trotchie choked her to the point where she could breathe.

The documents go on to say the woman’s mother who was also in the motel room was eventually able to get Trotchie off of her daughter. She said Trotchie told the woman's mother he wanted to kill her daughter and grandkids.

The judge set bail at $100,000 in Missoula County Justice Court Thursday.
