Kinston Man Accused Of Strangling Girlfriend

A Lenoir County man with a criminal history of abusing women is behind bars again, charged with a similar crime.

The Kinston Free Press reports Corey Thomas, 38, of Kinston, was arrested after choking his girlfriend in Lagrange to the point she was starting to pass out.

Lenoir County court records show Thomas is charged with felony assault by strangulation.

State records show a lengthy rap sheet for Thomas. He got out of prison in 2009 for a conviction of assaulting a female.

    He needs to be on the chain gang, working hard and locked up for a long time. Poor example for a man.

      i agree, this state needs to enforce punishments that are worse than the crime. then, and only then, will thugs like this man think twice before doing something like this.

    Why do they keep letting these monsters out of jail? It is a vicious cycle that repeats itself until someone gets killed

    Don't you just love it "a criminal history of abusing women is behind bars again, charged with the same crime" and "Stat records show a lengthy rap sheet". Courtesy of our LAME USELESS GOOD-FOR-NOTHING "justice" system.
