ALBUQUERQUE — State Police officer Steven Carroll testified Monday that he pleaded with an attacker that "you don't want to kill a cop" as Carroll was being beaten and strangled and eventually was stabbed during a routine arrest gone wrong earlier this year.

"I'm begging for him to just get off of me and go because I just want this to end," said Carroll, 26, who ended up shooting and wounding the man who stabbed the officer with Carroll's own knife.
