ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Police say a North Carolina man charged in another man’s death is also suspected of biting a pregnant woman.

The Asheville Citizen Times reports that warrants accuse 20-year-old Sharod Terrell Woods of breaking the woman’s phone, assaulting her and threatening to kill her. About a week later, he allegedly assaulted the same woman again.

Woods was arrested earlier this month and charged with first-degree murder in the shooting of 20-year-old Kelby Ismael Swinton-Moore. Police say officers responded July 8 to a report of shots fired at an Asheville apartment complex and found Swinton-Moore. He was taken to Mission Hospital, where he died.

Woods is jailed without bond. It was unclear if he had an attorney.
