Terrence Gilmer, 26, of Tisbury was charged with attempted murder Thursday in Edgartown District Court, after police responded to a report of domestic violence.
Just before noon, Tisbury police responded to a home at 15 Goah Way. According to police, Mr. Gilmer attempted to strangle his girlfriend for about one minute, which led them to seek the attempted murder charge.
Police said there was no prior record of trouble at that address.
At his arraignment Thursday afternoon, the court set bail for Mr. Gilmer at $1,500.
