Reports on the incident also say Carver repeatedly beat and kicked the woman and even struck her with a plastic baby bathtub. He threatened to cut off her fingers with a box cutter if she tried to call for help. Investigators also say he threatened to kill her and that he choked her to the point of passing out.
Pasco County Deputies say that Carver disabled all telephones in the house, keeping the woman from calling for help. Eventually, the woman was able to escape the house and fled to a neighbor for help.
Carver was arrested and charged with attempted murder-homicide, domestic aggravated assault, tampering with a victim-witness and false imprisonment.
Carver is being held without bond.
