PHOENIX (AP) - An El Mirage man accused of fatally stabbing his father last year has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 47-year-old Albert Rodriguez Arias entered his plea Friday and will be sentenced Feb. 13.

Arias was arrested last April 5 on suspicion of first-degree murder and originally pleaded not guilty in the case.

Police found 76-year-old Pete Arias bleeding from six stab wounds at his home in El Mirage, located west of Phoenix. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Court records show Albert Arias told police that he was tired of being abused by his father and he had "lost it" and stabbed him.
