Man Accused of Cutting Woman's Throat Wants to Withdraw Plea
The man who pleaded guilty to attempted homicide for cutting a woman's throat in Summit Township in May wants to withdraw his plea, according to court records.
Lynard T. Carr, 35, pleaded guilty to attempted homicide, possession of a weapon and simple assault in February, but his attorney filed a motion to withdraw the guilty plea Wednesday.
Judge John Mead ordered prosecutors Thursday to file a response within ten days.
State Police said they found a 37-year-old woman with a cut to her neck when troopers were called to the 7700 block of Edinboro Rd. around 4:30 a.m. May 2.
The knife attack happened when someone else went into the residence to check on the children, according to investigators. That's when Carr then got into a confrontation with the person, and they both rolled down a flight of stairs, troopers said.
Carr took off and was arrested just south of the residence, according to State Police.
He was denied bail and has been behind bars in the Erie County Prison since the incident.
