LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The trial starts Wednesday for a southern Indiana man accused of beating his four-year-old son to death.

Jurors are being chosen to hear the case. Prosecutors say Christopher Bruck admitted to hitting the boy so hard his hand hurt after the child tried to get his attention.

The boy fell backward, hitting his head on the carpeted concrete floor.

It happened at Bruck's home in Clark County in Jan. 2015. He's charged with aggravated battery.
