— A Raleigh man once convicted of manslaughter faces charges that he threatened and tried to kill a woman Friday, according to an arrest warrant.

Court records show that Roy McLean, 47, told Doris Badgett that he was going to kill her, then sliced her across the stomach with a knife.

McLean followed when she ran to a neighbor's house, and he attacked and stabbed Sharod Small, who tried to help Badgett, police stated in court records.

McLean, whose address in Raleigh was unknown, was charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

He was placed in the Wake County jail without bond. His first court appearance was set for Monday.

Police noted in court records that McLean has a history of domestic violence. He was convicted of stalking last May and put on probation, according to state Department of Correction records.

McLean was convicted of manslaughter in 1990 and served 2½ years in prison, DOC records show. The details of that case weren't available.

He also has multiple convictions for common-law robbery and breaking and entering.
