A 9-year-old boy was fatally stabbed Monday night in Michigan.
Police say several boys were playing at a playground, when a 12-year-old boy allegedly pulled out a steak knife and stabbed Michael Conner Verkerke in the back.
Police say Verkerke ran to his home, where he collapsed and was taken to the hospital.
He died later Monday night.
A neighbor says the suspect called the police and turned himself in. That neighbor also says the 12-year-old told him he was upset, nobody loved him, and that he had taken pills earlier in the day.
The boy pleaded not guilty to the murder charge.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for next week.
