A Greenville man is accused of trying to kill a woman Tuesday night.

Corey Manning is facing 17 different charges including attempted first-degree murder, kidnapping, assault by strangulation, and assault on a female.

Pitt County deputies say around 10:45 p.m. Tuesday they were called for an assault to a home on Cedar Drive, which is off Pactolus Highway.

Warrants say Manning used a chokehold with his arms around the woman's neck, "resulting in losing consciousness" and threatened to kill her.

The court documents say the man struck the victim with a belt and drug her down a hallway.

After a search warrant, deputies also charged the 25-year-old Manning with several drug counts, including felony possession of Schedule II controlled substance.

Manning was given a $920,000 bond on 13 of the charges, while no bond on the other charges.
