NEW YORK - A man accused of ambushing a New Jersey woman and stabbing her to death in her driveway is suing the New York City Transit Authority for $50 million.

The Record newspaper reports that Arthur Lomando's attorney Andrew Plasse says his client was hurt after the killing when he fell from the platform of the 168th Street station. Plasse says Lomando was jostled and that the station was overcrowded.

Plasse says in documents filed in New York that Lomando either slipped or was hit by falling debris.

Authorities had said Lomando tried to kill himself by jumping in front of a subway on Oct. 22, hours after he is accused of killing Suzanne Bardzell with a machete-like knife.

Lomando had both feet amputated. He's expected in court on Friday.
