Ala. man accused of murdering toddler son with knife, nail-pulling tool

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.
