KANSAS CITY, Kan. – A Kansas judge has ruled that a woman accused in her 7-month-old stepson's death is mentally fit to stand trial for murder.
Separately, Wyandotte County District Attorney Jerome Gorman confirmed Monday that remains found on a Kansas City, Kansas, property that the family was renting belonged to the boy.
Michael Jones and his wife, Heather, are charged with murder in the death of Michael Jones' son and they are both jailed on multi-million dollar bonds.
Wyandotte County District Judge Michael Grosko last week found Heather Jones competent to stand trial in the killing.
Police investigating a disturbance last November found juvenile remains in a livestock area on the property. Authorities have not publicly confirmed media reports that the child's remains were fed to pigs.
