Man indicted for attempted murder

Timothy Loyer

Timothy Loyer

ELYRIA — A Lorain man has been indicted on attempted murder, felonious assault, abduction and domestic violence charges for allegedly choking his girlfriend into unconsciousness in April.

When Lorain police arrived at the scene April 12, they found Timothy Loyer, 35, on top of Jennifer Varney, choking her.

Officers reported that Varney’s face was swollen and purple, and that she had visible strangulation marks on her neck when she was found. She was gargling in an effort to breathe before being taken to the hospital.

Loyer told police he was “only trying to help her ’cause she fainted,” according to a report on the incident.

Loyer’s sister, April Loyer, called police at 11:22 p.m. on the night of the attack to report her brother was trying to kill Varney. She told police the relationship between the couple was abusive and that there were children in the house at the time of the attack.

    “She was gargling in an effort to breathe before being taken to the hospital.’

    Um, shouldn’t it be “gurgling”… otherwise, we must assume she had time to freshen her breath before being taken to the hospital…

    Chalk another one up for the public school education… C-T Staff reporting.

            Because he pointed out that public school education is lacking, and you went and proved that in spades.

            I’ve met more intelligent broccoli.

    We should have executions daily in America. Those convicted of violent crimes should be put down. America is so sick of these people.

    Hope she has a brother that will “have a talk” with him.
    For those of you who say “violence is never the answer”
    Sorry but sometimes violence is exactly ‘the” right answer
    My ex-brother in law NEVER touched my sister again after our little talk.

  • luvmytoaster

    UGH – she’ll be back with him as soon as she is released – please get help!

    • Jennifer Williams

      As it says he is being indicted on attempted murder, felonious assault, abduction and domestic violence charges for allegedly choking his girlfriend into unconsciousness in April. I doubt he will be out of jail any day soon. I knew this guy has a bad reputation with drug and alcohol VIOLENCE. It is not something new he is a repeat offender. He deserves to rot in jail.

      • tomfeher

        Burge will give community service

        • stillsleepyeyes

          Because he had a rough upbringing………..

        • Simon Jester

          How much time won’t he get, Commissar Burge??

  • Bob

    Lorain man???? Um No. Because a real man never hits a lady.

  • annoyomous

    She put a restraining order on him why was she even with dude if she thought her life was in danger several other times I mean really learn the first time

    • Michele From Ohio

      The most dangerous time for a woman when she is in an abusive relationship is when she tries to leave her abuser. Restraining orders send these types over the edge, they can’t handle the loss of control over their victims.
