Warrant: Woman stabbed 22 times at Raleigh home
Posted February 2, 2015
Raleigh, N.C. — A woman found bleeding in a Raleigh home more than a week ago was stabbed 22 times, according to a search warrant seeking access to money the suspect had on him when he was jailed for the crime.
Raleigh police say Robert Levelle Williams stabbed the woman, identified in court documents as Anna Brodie, on the morning of Jan. 24 with two large kitchen knives at his home at 1108 Savannah Drive.
Investigators arrested Williams, 36, the same day on charges of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.
Police have not commented publicly about the investigation, saying only it is a domestic violence case. A search warrant returned Monday, however, alleges that Williams was looking for money at the time.
According to the warrant, Brodie, who had taken out a $2,900 loan on Jan. 23, told a police officer who responded to the home "that while the defendant was stabbing her, he stated, 'Where's the money?'" and then took $1,000 from her.
Williams then fled the scene and later called a friend, saying he believed he had killed her, the warrant states. That friend then went to Williams' home and let police talk to Williams.
After police arrested him, Williams took the money that was on him and deposited it into an inmate trust account, which investigators were trying to obtain with the warrant.
Williams was in the Wake County Detention Center under a $750,000 secured bond Monday night.
