A Kansas city man that had been arrested for physically abusing his wife is also suspected of killing his seven year old son and feeding his dead body to pigs.
Police said that forty four year old, Michael Jones, is being held on charges that include domestic violence but after further investigation human remains were discovered in the backyard of the Jones property.
Witnesses said that the seven year old boy has been missing since early 2015 and that the Jones family has a total of eight children.
Livestock was moved onto the Jones property in September.
Authorities said that the remaining seven children have been removed from the home and taken into protective custody.
