WILMINGTON, NC (StarNewsOnline.com) -- A Wilmington man named on the New Hanover County Sheriff’s most-wanted list for attempted murder surrendered to authorities Thursday.

Randy Ernest Prevedel, 54, was booked into the New Hanover jail on charges of attempted first-degree murder, assault by strangulation, second-degree kidnapping and a warrant for failure to appear.

According to Sgt. Jerry Brewer, in September 2011 deputies were called to Prevedel's estranged wife's home on Tesla Drive on a report of a battery. When officers arrived, they discovered the victim had been dragged by her hair and strangled into unconciousness by Prevedel, Brewer said. Prevedel was gone when police arrived.

You never know

He looks like he may like what they do to new fish in jail.
