PITTSBURGH (AP) - A trial is underway for three men charged in the stabbing and attempted carjacking of Pittsburgh Steelers lineman Mike Adams.

The trial began Tuesday in Pittsburgh for 26-year-old Michael Paranay, 26-year-old Dquay Means and 27-year-old Jerrell Whitlock. They’re facing charges ranging from conspiracy to attempted homicide.

Prosecutor Christopher Stone said in his opening statements Tuesday that the defendants “saw an opportunity to steal a nice truck” and they took it.
