Clayton Man Charged With Trying To Kill Girlfriend

- On April 15, a 40-year-old Clayton woman was rushed to Johnston Memorial Hospital with a gapping stab wound to her chest. The victim told medical workers she was walking up the steps when she fell forward on a steak knife. Doctors told Johnston County deputies her injuries were not consistent with her story. Her injuries were so severe she was transferred to Pitt Memorial in Greenville for further treatment. Following an investigation into the incident, Lyle Bernard Parrish, 49, of Matthews Road , Clayton was arrested Sunday and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and first-degree kidnapping. Parrish was the victim’s boyfriend, according to Tammy Amaon, a spokesperson for the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office. This is not the first time Parrish has been arrested. In 1987, he was convicted for assaulting a woman and in 1991, he was found guilty on drug charges. Following his latest arrest, Parrish was jailed under a $100,000 bond.
