A man accused of trying to smother his wife with a pillow in New Milford is heading to court.
New Milford police said they received a 911 call from a home on Cornwall Drive early Saturday morning.
When officers arrived, they said they found 67-year-old Herbert St. Jean trying to suffocate his wife.
She was brought to a local hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
Jean was arraigned in Bantam Superior Court Monday morning and his case was continued until Oct. 16. His case has been transferred to Litchfield Superior Court and is still being held on a $250,000 bond.
