The man who is charged with pushing another man to his death in front of an oncoming subway train in New York City, Naeem Davis, says he was high on marijuana and blames his actions on voices in his head, reports the New York Post.
The Post interviewed Davis at New York City’s mail jail complex, Rikers Island.
“I heard, ‘Naeem, he’s coming again. He’s coming again. You gotta do something.’ I kept hearing voices like that,” Naeem Davis said. “I was under the influence [of marijuana],” he said. “It wasn’t my intention to kill him. I just wanted him to get away from me. From the depths of my heart, I didn’t mean to kill him.”
Davis claims that he was harassed by 58-year-old Queens father, Ki Suk Han, on the platform of the 49th Street subway station before the push that resulted in Han falling onto the tracks. He is charged with second-degree murder.
