PHOENIX -- A man accused of attacking two people with a meat cleaver has pleaded guilty in the case.
 
Qui Tu Truong, 28, pleaded guilty Tuesday to attempting to commit first-degree murder and aggravated assault.
 
He's scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 9.

Police said Truong was angry over being fired from a Phoenix market in March 2011. They said he went to a townhome near 69th Avenue and Indian School Road and attacked two former co-workers.

Authorities said Truong wounded a 56-year-old woman and her 21-year-old nephew.

Truong fled the home after the attack but was later arrested.
