ORLANDO, Fla. – A man charged with killing a prostitute in central Florida and then dumping her body asked his fifth-grade son to help dispose the body, police said.
Alan John Jett, 40, is charged with first-degree murder in the June slaying of Lashanda Rae Brand, Orange County sheriff's officials said. Investigators received a tip that Jett's son told a classmate about the slaying.
The boy was interviewed at school late last month, and authorities said he gave up his father. According to the affidavit, the boy said he heard his father and Brand argue about money. He told investigators he later saw Brand's body wrapped in a blanket and tape.
The Department of Children and Families placed the boy with a relative.
