James Sicard, 44, is accused of trying to break the neck of his wife, Danielle, after telling the town clerk that he was going perform a relaxation technique then twisting her head violently.

Before the alleged attack, James Sicard told one of the couple’s four children to say goodbye to his wife and hug her, according to testimony in court.
