Man charged with aggravated murder in young son's death

May 15, 2018 - 7:26 AM

PARMA, Ohio - A northeast Ohio man who drove to a police station and surrendered to officers saying he'd committed a crime has been charged with aggravated murder in the apparent stabbing death of his 18-month-old son.

Police in the Cleveland suburb of Parma say 41-year-Jason Shorter's son, Nicholas, was in the trunk of his car when he drove to the station Saturday night with self-inflicted cuts on his arm.

The toddler was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. A Parma police spokesman says the toddler apparently had been stabbed in the chest.

Jason Shorter was taken to a Cleveland hospital, where he remains under police guard.

Court records don't list an attorney for him.
