Raleigh man charged with attempted murder in domestic violence case

Robert Levelle Williams was facing attempted murder and assault charges Monday after a weekend stabbing that police classified as a domestic violence case.

Williams, 36, was arrested at his home at 1108 Savannah Drive about 8:30 Saturday morning, records showed.

In an arrest warrant, police charged that Williams tried to kill Anna Brodie by stabbing her “multiple times” with “two large kitchen knives.”

Williams was held over the weekend without bond, which is standard practice in domestic violence cases. He was accused of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury along with the attempted-murder count.

Williams was arrested in October 2011 by state insurance investigators who said they were breaking up a scheme to stage car accidents to get insurance money.

He was convicted of insurance fraud that December and served 16 months in prison.
