JENNINGS, Mo. (AP) -- A 35-year-old man has pleaded guilty in the stabbing death of his former girlfriend at her Jennings home.

Calvin Campbell II pleaded guilty Friday in St. Louis Circuit Court to second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the 2013 death of 28-year-old Sophia Moore.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Campbell admitted in court Friday that he killed Moore at her home in Jennings about a week after Moore kicked Campbell out of the home. Authorities say Campbell returned, kicked in her door and stabbed her to death in front of her two sons. Her 9-year-old son ran to a neighbor's home, screaming for help. The boys were not injured.

Campbell surrendered the next morning.

He is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 7.
