Auburn Man Faces Strangulation Charge

Robert C. Kaelin, 18, of Auburn is scheduled for a Jan. 17 arraignment at Nemaha County Court on a charge of strangulation.

An arrest affidavit says an Auburn woman called sheriff’s deputies on Dec. 14 regarding loud fighting at a Schneider Avenue apartment. When deputies arrived, another woman approached to say she had been strangled and assaulted.

The affidavit says the woman reported locking Kaelin out of the apartment, saying he broke in and assaulted her while she was holding her 16-month-old toddler.

Kaelin told deputies he had not assaulted the woman.
