NOBLESVILLE, Ind. - An Alabama man has pleaded guilty to fatally stabbing his 2-year-old son at a relative's home in central Indiana.

The Indianapolis Star reports Micah Harrison of Robertsdale, Ala., made the plea to a murder charge Wednesday in a Hamilton County court on the day testimony in his trial was scheduled to start.

Authorities say Harrison stabbed his son, Michael, in January 2013. Police say Harrison had driven with his three children to his parents' home in Noblesville and that the children's mother said he had taken them without her permission.

Prosecutors say Harrison said he feared someone was trying to kill him when he stabbed Michael in the chest with a kitchen knife and in the forehead with a nail-pulling tool.

The other children weren't harmed.
