KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Investigators in Kansas say they suspect a father fed his 7-year-old to pigs after beating him to death.

According to KCTV, Michael A. Jones, 44, was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated battery and child abuse. His bond was set at $10 million.

Police were called to a home on Wednesday after receiving a report that Jones was attacking his wife and firing a gun at her. During the investigation, officers received a tip telling them to check for the decomposed body of a missing 7-year-old boy.

On the second day of the investigation, human remains were discovered near a barn on the property. Two women who used to babysit the couple’s children told KCTV that the living conditions in the home were deplorable. One of the former babysitters told investigators she fears that the child was fed to pigs after being beaten to death.

The pigs were added to the barn this fall and the 7-year-old went missing sometime between May 1 and Sept. 28, according to KCTV.

Jones is expected to make his first appearance in Wyandotte County District Court on Monday.

  • The criminal will always get a weapon!

    Sad but true! No amount of legislation will prevent a bad guy from getting a weapon! But, Legislation will keep you or your upright and law abiding neighbor from purchasing personal protection! Stay PRO CHOICE! Email your assembly member and tell them how important it is that no new laws are made on firearms! The laws will restrict YOU not the CRIMINAL!
