The drugstore robber convicted of murder in a high-profile pharmacy shooting is now accused of committing five more crimes in the latest in a string of run-ins with the law.

Jevontai Cartez Ingram, 19, was charged Thursday in Oklahoma County District Court with first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, domestic abuse by strangulation, domestic abuse against a pregnant woman and malicious destruction of property.

According to a court affidavit, on June 27, Ingram kicked in the door of a Del City home and held a woman against the wall by her throat. He kneed the woman in the stomach when she tried to call 911 and then took her phone.

The woman, who was four months pregnant, was able to escape. She later returned to the home to find all of her clothes covered in bleach, the affidavit states.

Ingram spent three years in custody for his role in the botched 2009 robbery of Reliable Discount Pharmacy in south Oklahoma City. He pleaded guilty to murder after an accomplice died in the robbery. Ingram was 14 at the time.
