A man from Kansas has pleaded guilty to killing his 7-year-old son and feeding his emaciated body to pigs.

46 year old, Michael A. Jones, of Kansas City, pleaded guilty last Friday in Wyandotte County District Court to 1 count of first-degree murder in the death of little Adrian Jones. The boys remains were found in a barn at a property rented by Jones and his wife, the Kansas City Star reported.

The boy’s grandmother, Judy Conway, told the newspaper she had been prepped to testify in Jones’ trial, but was “relieved” to learn of the guilty plea.

It makes me pretty happy,” she said. “I’m relieved that [Jones] and Heather [Jones] will hopefully be behind bars for the rest of their life. It won’t bring Adrian back, of course, but it makes me feel really good that neither one can hurt another child again.

The boy’s 31-year-old stepmother, Heather Jones, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and child abuse in November. Jones was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years. She also received an additional 5 years and 8 months in prison for child abuse.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Sheryl Lidtke referred to Adrian Jones as a curious, energetic boy who “was cute as a button” and said the abuse he endured was the worst she had seen in her nearly 3 decades as a prosecutor.
