Marlene Bird attacker Leslie Black now says he didn't set woman on fire


The man who pleaded guilty to a horrific attack on a woman in Prince Albert, Sask. is now saying that he did not plan to kill her.

Last year, Leslie Black pleaded guilty to the attempted murder of Marlene Bird. Today, he's asking a judge to allow him to withdraw the plea.

In 2014, Bird was found horribly injured in a shopping mall parking lot. She suffered severe injuries after being cut and set on fire. Bird lost both her legs and spent weeks in hospital after the attack.
