A man accused of killing a New York City woman he met on a dating app says voices in his head made him do it.

Danueal Drayton spoke to a reporter with New York's Daily News who visited him at a Los Angeles jail.

In an interview published on Tuesday, Drayton says he remembers strangling Queens nurse Samantha Stewart two weeks ago.

Drayton was arrested in Los Angeles after police say he sexually assaulted a different woman and tried to strangle her. He says he also remembers choking her.
