Sheen and wife expected at court hearing in Aspen

ASPEN, Colo. – Charlie Sheen and his wife, Brooke, are expected to be at a court hearing in Aspen where they’ll appear together for the first time since Christmas.

Sheen and his attorney will ask a judge Wednesday to throw out or revise a protection order that prevents the two from contacting each other.

Such protection orders are standard in cases of alleged domestic violence.

Authorities arrested Sheen Christmas Day on suspicion of felony menacing, second-degree assault, and criminal mischief.

Prosecutors are opposing Sheen’s request. Brooke Sheen told police he put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her. Sheen denies threatening his wife. Attorneys for the couple say they want to try to reconcile.

The 44-year-old actor stars in “Two and a Half Men” on CBS.
