Man charged in subway rider's death blames voices
NEW YORK -- The man who police say pushed another man to his death in front of an oncoming New York City subway train says he was high on drugs and trying to combat voices in his head.
Authorities have charged 30-year-old Naeem Davis with second-degree murder in the Monday death of 58-year-old Ki-Suck Han.
Davis tells the New York Post in a jailhouse interview (http://bit.ly/TLW17v) that Han had grabbed his arm and threatened him earlier. He says he was coaxed into shoving Han by voices in his head that he couldn't control.
Davis tells the newspaper he didn't attempt to pull Han to safety because "it happened so fast" and he was "under the influence."
He says he didn't mean to kill Han.
