MONROE - Neighbors of the Monroe woman accused of trying to strangle her husband say they're not surprised by the allegations.

Police say Deborah Sylvester tried to choke her husband with her bare hands and then crashed her car into his vehicle on Tuesday night.

One neighbor said, "She would be the person to do that because over the years I've lived here she's been known to have some crazy outbursts."

Sylvester's public defender says she is currently home after her husband served her divorce papers while she was in jail.
