PITTSBURGH (AP) - A man charged with slashing the throat of a Pittsburgh bicyclist told police that voices in his head told him to do it.

The recorded police confession of 23-year-old Anthony Scholl, of West Mifflin, was played in court Tuesday.

Scholl is being tried on charges of attempted homicide, reckless endangerment and aggravated assault in the stabbing and throat-slashing of bicyclist Colin Albright in September 2012.

Albright testified that he was walking his bike up some steps when he was attacked from behind. He was stabbed multiple times and his throat was slashed.

Scholl’s attorney Ryan Tutera said the confession was coerced and his client wasn’t the attacker.

The case is expected to go to the jury on Wednesday.
