POSTED: 10:58 am EDT June 17, 2011

BELMONT, N.H. -- A Belmont resident indicted on charges including trying to strangle his wife has been ordered deported to his native country in Africa.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement said 24-year-old Sekou Conde remains behind bars in a Massachusetts jail that houses federal detainees.

The Citizen of Laconia reported that a Belknap County Superior Court grand jury this year returned a Class B felony charge of second-degree assault, alleging Conde tried to strangle his wife.

He faces 3 1/2 years in prison if convicted.

Conde also was indicted on a Class A misdemeanor of criminal threatening.

Authorities said Conde came to the U.S. in 1999 from the African nation of Guinea.
