NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) – Jury selection is underway in the trial of an Alabama man charged with fatally stabbing his 2-year-old son in central Indiana.
 
Micah Harrison of Robertsdale, Ala., is charged with murder in the Jan. 9, 2013, death of his son, Michael, at a relatives' home in Noblesville, about 15 miles north of Indianapolis.
