A woman remains on life support at Pitt County Memorial Hospital after a domestic assault a week ago landed her in jail.
New Bern police have charged Joshua Miller with felony assault inflicting serious injury and possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police say on April 22nd both Miller and Carolyn Fell were involved in a domestic violence case at their home on Monroe Drive. They say Miller had a visible bite mark on his arm, while Fell had swelling over her right eye, causing it to almost closed. Fell told officers that it happened when she fell and admitted to drinking alcohol with medication. Officers say she refused any medical help.
Both were taken into custody and placed in the Craven County jail for a 48 hour hold. But less than four hours later the jail said Fell was acting incoherent and taken to CarolinaEast Medical Center where she was listed in serious condition. The woman was later airlifted to PCMH where she remains on life support.
Miller was arrested Friday on the new charge and his bond was set at $35,000.
