Kansas Couple Charged With Murder of Child

A Kansas bail bondsman and his wife have been charged with first-degree murder in the death of a child authorities believe to be the man’s missing son.

Wyandotte County prosecutors say Michael Jones and his wife, Heather Jones, were charged Friday. Both also are charged with child abuse.

Michael Jones was arrested late last month after a domestic disturbance at the family’s rural residence, where authorities also found a juvenile’s remains. Those remains have not been identified.

Heather Jones is being held on $5 million bond and is scheduled for a first court appearance Monday. She doesn’t have a listed attorney.

Michael Jones is jailed on $10 million bond. His lawyer didn’t return a call seeking comment.
