BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A North Charleston man will head to trial this week for an alleged deadly knife attack on his girlfriend in Berkeley County, according to Deputy Solicitor Bryan Alfaro.

Edward Nelson fled Moncks Corner police before he was captured in Berkeley County in October 2016.

On October 15, 2016, Police responded Saturday to a reported assault at an apartment in the 100 block of Bradley Road in Moncks Corner, Chief Rick Ollic said.

Davis had received several cuts over her body from a knife, and was rushed to Trident Hospital where she later died, Coroner Bill Salisbury said.

The Berkeley County Coroner identified the victim who died as Shonda Davis, 38, of Moncks Corner.
