garrote

noun A weaponised device used for assassination and as a device for capital punishment in the Iberian peninsula (until being abolished in the late 1970s). Garrotes consist of a choking part (e.g., cord, rope, band, wire, etc.), which is looped around the victim’s neck, and a twisting part, which is tightened until the victim expires. First used by the Romans to dispatch enemies of state, the Spanish and Portuguese used the garrote in the Middle Ages and in the colonisation of the New World.

verb To kill or execute by garroting.
