— A Raleigh man who has served time for manslaughter and selling drugs has been accused of sex crimes against a 3-year-old girl.

Authorities charged Eugenia Mondena Davis, 36, with first-degree sex offense with a child and taking indecent liberties with a child. He was given a $500,000 bond and scheduled to appear in court Thursday.

According to an arrest warrant, the alleged offenses happened between late last year and March of this year.

State Department of Correction records show that Davis was released from prison in November 2009 after serving a five-month sentence. He had been convicted of assault on a female and violating his probation for earlier convictions for selling drugs and assault on a female.

Davis was returned to prison in April after being convicted on two counts of larceny and one count of communicating threats. His sentence is scheduled to end in September 2011.

DOC records show that Davis was convicted of manslaughter in connection with a June 9, 1991, death in Johnston County. He served five years in prison.

He also has a 1991 conviction for assault inflicting serious injury and 2001 convictions on four counts each of selling drugs and possession with intent to sell drugs.
