Man Accused of Fatal Stabbing Sues NYC Transit Authority

A man accused of ambushing a New Jersey woman and stabbing her to death in her driveway is suing the MTA for $50 million.

Arthur Lomando's attorney, Andrew Plasse, said his client was hurt after the deadly stabbing when he fell from the platform of the 168th Street station, The Record newspaper reports.

Authorities said Lomando tried to kill himself by jumping in front of a subway on Oct. 22, hours after he allegedly stabbed Suzanne Bardzell to death with a machete-like knife. Lomando had both feet amputated.

Plasse, however, said Lomando was jostled and that the station was overcrowded. In documents filed in New York, Plasse said Lomando either slipped or was hit by falling debris.

Lomando is expected in court Friday for a hearing on the murder charge.
