A Centre County jury has convicted a man for assaulting his wife at the couple's College Township home.

Darryl Noye was found guilty of simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and false imprisonment.

However, the jury also decided that Noye was not guilty on several other charges, including aggravated assault, one count of simple assault and one count of recklessly endangering.

Prosecutors say the 36-year-old man attacked his wife on March 20, 2013. When the woman tried to leave, he reportedly grabbed her and dragged her through the house.

According to a news release from the district attorney's office, Noye pinned his wife down on a bed and suffocated her for over two minutes. The victim reported that she began to pass out and thought she was going to die that night.

The woman contacted police the next day, after Noye had left for work. Prosecutors say photos of the woman that were shown to the jury showed she had bruises all over her head and body. Noye will be sentenced on March 14.

In a statement, District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller says, "We are pleased that the jury held the defendant responsible for assault and unlawful restraint in this matter since domestic violence is a very serious matter."
