More information is needed. But you need to get your statement to the prosecutor. That is best done through his attorney. Justice works slowly in Essex so the sooner you start the better. based on your post I don't think you need an attorney. You said you were grabbed around the throat . That is still so. The issue is the strangulation.
First, do not post too many specific details about your case on the Internet. There is no expectation of privacy there in anything that is written post it can be used against you.
There are a lot of questions that need to be answered before a real response can be given. However, you both need legal representation at this time. The sooner you get legal representation, the better.

First hire a good lawyer for yourself and then a good lawyer for your ex if you want him to get the best possible result.
