3 to trial in alleged attack on Steelers' Adams

Posted: Updated:
PITTSBURGH, Pa. - (AP) - A trial is scheduled to begin for three men charged in the stabbing of Pittsburgh Steelers lineman Mike Adams.

The trial is scheduled to begin Tuesday in Pittsburgh for 26-year-old Michael Paranay, 26-year-old Dquay Means and 27-year-old Jerrell Whitlock. They're facing charges ranging from conspiracy to attempted homicide. Lawyers for the three men claim Adams lied about the details of the incident. Adams, an offensive lineman, was hospitalized for four days after the June 2013 incident.

The alleged stabbing and carjacking took place at about 3 a.m. in the city's South Side, a neighborhood that contains the team's practice facilities but also is known for its bars and nightclubs.

The Steelers drafted the 6-foot-7, 325-pound Adams in the second round in 2012 out of Ohio State.
