Stepmother of Missing 7-Year-Old Boy Arrested in Kansas
The wife of a Kansas bail bondsman charged with abusing his missing 7-year-old son has been arrested.
Wyandotte County Jail records show that Heather Jones is being held on suspicion of first-degree murder and child abuse but has not been charged.
Jones was taken into custody at 4 a.m. Thursday on a bench warrant for a petty theft from 2012.
The prosecutor's office didn't immediately return phone or email messages.
In interviews with The Associated Press, Jones has alleged that her husband, Michael A. Jones, abused her and the missing boy. The remains of a juvenile were found at a barn on the couple's property but haven't been identified.
Michael Jones is jailed on $10 million bond on abuse and battery charges unrelated to the discovery of the human remains.
