Saying there was blood everywhere, the driver who witnessed his passenger’s throat being slashed by a knife-wielding felon recalled the moments leading up to the attempted murder.“I saw blood go everywhere,” the 22-year-old driver, Anthony McCormick, testified during preliminary hearing before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke for Abel Cabrerra Torres, 31, who is accused of attempted murder.Torres was bound to the grand jury on attempted murder charges Tuesday afternoon for slashing the throat of Jared Hendrixson and then trying to run him down in a stolen car last month. Hendrixson survived after extensive treatment. Torres fled the scene of the attack on Pike Hill Road in the stolen car and abandoned it in a creek off Yager Road.
