NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) _ Suburban Indianapolis police say an Alabama man fearing for his life fatally stabbed his 2-year-old son in the chest with a kitchen knife and in the forehead with a nail-pulling tool.
Thirty-year-old Micah William Harrison of Robertsdale, Ala., was charged with murder Thursday in Hamilton Superior Court.
Noblesville Police Detective Michael Sadler says in a probable cause affidavit that officers found Harrison's son, Michael, with two stab wounds to his chest from the knife and one in the forehead from a nail puller. Medics pronounced the boy dead Wednesday afternoon at the family's apartment about 15 miles north of Indianapolis.
The boy's grandmother told officers that ``Micah stated that someone or something was trying to kill him'' and that he hit a closet with a hammer before attacking the boy.
