HAGATNA, Guam (AP) — A Guam man is being held on $1 million bail after being charged with murder in the choking death of his girlfriend's ex-husband.

Carl Gargarita appeared in Superior Court this week after allegedly getting involved in a fight outside a Tumon club Saturday morning, the Pacific Daily News reported.

Court documents said Gargarita put Anthony Giralao into a chokehold and choked him until he blacked out. Giralao sustained numerous injuries to his neck, the documents said. An officer on the scene wasn't able to detect a pulse or breathing from Giralao.

Gargarita initially was charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault. The charges were changed after Giralao died.

That evening, Gargarita and Giralao's ex-wife, Irene Giralao, were drinking in a Tumon club, according to the documents. Gargarita answered Irene Giralao's phone, upsetting her.

She walked away from the club, and Gargarita allegedly told her to call her ex-husband and tell him where she was, according to court documents and police.

Irene Giralao's ex-husband arrived 30 minutes later and charged at Gargarita, the complaint said. The two men started punching each other before Gargarita put Giralao in a chokehold, the complaint said.
