A man accused of hacking a woman to death is facing new charges, reports say.
Jerry Brown, 33, was previously accused of hacking a pregnant woman to death with an ax and nearly killing his girlfriend in Bushwick last year.
The New York Post is reporting that Brown has now attacked a woman corrections officer at Riker's Island by throwing feces at her.
Brown is facing a maximum prison sentence of 25 years to life for the slaying as well as four years for harassing a corrections officer.
Brown has pleaded not guilty to both charges, according to the Post.
