INDIANAPOLIS – The trial for a father who admitted he stabbed his 2-year-old son to death will be delayed so the man can have a mental evaluation.
Micah Harrison was originally set to have his trial on March 12. But the trial, pretrial and a Monday hearing have all been canceled so that Harrison can undergo the evaluation.
He’s set to attend a status conference in April after being evaluated.
Harrison faces a murder charge following the stabbing death of his son in January. It happened at an apartment in Noblesville.
A judge entered a not guilty plea on his behalf. During an earlier court appearance last month, Harrison told the court, “Y’all should take me out back and shoot me. I killed my poor little baby.”
