The man who admitted to stabbing a New York psychologist to death with a meat cleaver in 2008 was found guilty Friday by a Manhattan jury.

David Tarloff was convicted of murder, attempted murder and assault.

He admitted killing Kathryn Faughey in 2008 when he showed up to her office looking to rob her co-worker but encountered her first.

His attorney had argued Tarloff is schizophrenic and could not be held criminally responsible.

But prosecutors say despite his psychiatric history, Tarloff knew what he was doing was wrong.

This is the second time prosecutors have tried Tarloff.

Last year a jury deadlocked on the charges.
