KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas City, Kan., man accused of attempting to drown two children has pleaded guilty to reduced charges.

The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/17J4XhC ) reports that Lamonte J. Brown was scheduled to go to trial Monday on a charge of attempted murder. But the 24-year-old pleaded guilty Friday to the reduced charges of aggravated kidnapping and criminal threat charges in Wyandotte County District Court.

Brown is scheduled to be sentenced June 7.

During Brown's preliminary hearing, witnesses testified that officers stopped Brown in January 2012 as he held a small child underwater in a bathtub. Officers then shot Brown with a stun gun and wrestled the child away from him.

Authorities said the children did not suffer serious injury.
