      The husband of news anchor Kim Joo-ha was let off with a two-year suspended sentence on Wednesday for assaulting his wife and forgery.

      Kim’s husband was convicted of strangling and slapping his wife in the face several times in June 2010 when she became angry after learning about his infidelity, and of assaulting her again in September last year during an argument over living expenses.

      Kim suffered injuries that required between two and four weeks of treatment.

      He was also charged with forging papers in October last year in order to find out the size of his wife's assets.

      The two are in the middle of an acrimonious divorce.
