CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago man who served prison time in the 1989 slaying of his teenage girlfriend is now accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and wounding another woman.

Forty-six-year-old Douglas Askew was charged Tuesday with murder and aggravated battery.

Authorities say Askew went to 52-year-old Sylvia Brice’s home on Dec. 31, killed her and stabbed another woman.

The Chicago Tribune reports (https://trib.in/2jE4xu7 ) Brice had filed Nov. 30 for a protection order against Askew.

A Cook County judge ordered Askew held without bail Tuesday. It was unclear if he has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

Askew was sentenced in 1990 to 40 years in prison for the 1989 murder of his 15-year-old pregnant girlfriend. He received two concurrent 30-year terms in the attempted murders of her sister and a man.
