PHOENIX (AP) - A man accused of stabbing his mother at a Phoenix restaurant and then attempting to behead her last year has pleaded guilty.

Maricopa County Superior Court officials say Michael Lee Hansen entered the plea Friday to a charge of attempted second-degree murder.

Hansen will be sentenced July 24 by a court commissioner.

Prosecutors say Hansen was arrested in July 2013 following the attack at the Sakura Sushi and Steakhouse.

According to police, he allegedly punched his mother, knocked her unconscious and stabbed her around her neck and hands. He told police he hit her and was attempting to cut off her head.

His mother suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Detectives say the attack allegedly stemmed from pornographic pictures of him.
