he was the victim of a "setup"
NEW YORK - A man accused of going on a 28-hour stabbing rampage through the city shouted that he was the victim of a "setup" as he was led from a police station Sunday. Maksim Gelman was arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court on charges that he hacked three people to death, then stalked the city for more than a day, attacking innocent strangers, hijacking vehicles and killing a pedestrian with a car. He did not speak as he stood shackled at the ankles and arms while dressed in a white jumpsuit issued to him after his bloody clothing was seized as evidence. He was ringed by a half-dozen guards. - COLLEEN LONG
