— Police say a Asheville 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.

    In leu of bond, maybe the court could order him fed well... biting people is a lousy way to obtain protein. And it tends to make enemies as well as just being weird,
