Sheen returning to Aspen in domestic violence case

Janet Urquhart/Aspen Times fileActor Charlie Sheen arrives for a court appearance in Aspen last month.

ASPEN – Actor Charlie Sheen is returning to court in Aspen on domestic violence charges stemming from a Christmas Day dispute with his wife.

An arraignment is scheduled for Monday afternoon.

Sheen is accused of putting a knife to the throat of Brooke Mueller Sheen while they vacationed in Aspen. He has denied the allegations. He faces charges of menacing, criminal mischief and assault.

Sheen is the star of “Two and a Half Men” on CBS.

He voluntarily entered a rehab facility last month. His publicist, Stan Rosenfield, called it “a preventive measure” but didn’t say why Sheen sought treatment.

The couple say they want to reconcile. Last month, a judge modified a restraining order that barred them from any contact so they could meet.
