A local woman faces charges after what police described as a physical altercation in her family’s Easton Road home last week.

Police were dispatched July 9 to check on a report of a domestic disturbance in the home and, as a result, charged Jennifer Brockman, 50, with third-degree strangulation and disorderly conduct.

Brockman’s bond was set at $500 and she was scheduled to have appeared the next day in Superior Court.
