It has been well documented that an abusers next step after choking is murder. Your boyfriend is one very small step away from taking your life. Please don’t ever go back to him, and find a therapist to try and understand why you are struggling with this. You deserve so much better.

^ OP, it is not your fault he gets angry in this way. It sucks for him that he's in jail, but he's there because of what he, a grown ass man, did. It is not your fault, please do not get yourself killed feeling guilty for an abuser.
