WABASH (AP) — Authorities say a northern Indiana man who was shot by police after he allegedly stabbed his 10-year-old son, mortally wounding the boy, has died at a hospital more than two weeks after that attack.

Wabash County Prosecutor Bill Hartley Jr. said Monday 32-year-old William L. Sendelbach died Saturday at a Fort Wayne hospital.

Sendelbach was charged with one count of murder stemming from the death of his son, Kayden Sendelbach, who was stabbed Oct. 8. His father was shot by police after he fired at two officers call to the scene, wounding one of them. Officers then found Sendelbach's son mortally wounded inside the house.
