A Buffalo man who choked a female companion and threatened to kill her with a knife was sentenced in Cheektowaga Town Court to six months in jail.

Decarlo J. Worth, 41, of Tower Street, had pleaded guilty to a charge of menacing stemming from the Aug. 19 domestic incident at a Slate Creek Drive home. He was sentenced Wednesday by Town Justice Paul Piotrowski.

Police said Worth originally was charged with menacing, criminal obstruction of breathing and harassment.
