Dad admits to killing his son, whose body he put in a pig barn

A father plead guilty in the case of his slain 7-year-old son whose remains were found brutally beaten and fed to the family's pigs in 2015.

Michael Jones, 46, admitted to committing first degree murder in the death of his son, Adrian Jones.

Police first arrived at the Kansas City home after receiving a phone call reporting a domestic disturbance. There, authorities reported findings of rooms full of dead rodents, trash and syringes.

After realizing his son had been reported missing for months, police returned with a warrant, later discovering Jones' son's remains in a pig barn on Thanksgiving Day in November 2015.

"He was horribly abused, neglected and ultimately killed. I'm sure his suffering was unbearable," said Chief Deputy District Attorney Sheryl Lidtke told the The Kansas City Star.

Though the reports say that the prosecutor declined to provide details of the gruesome case, police reports dating back to the discovery of Adrian's body claimed investigators suspected the young boy's body was fed to the pigs.

Both Jones and his wife, who is also his son's stepmother, Heather Jones, were found guilty and received life sentences for their role in the child's death.

Neither will be given a chance of parole for 25 years in Adrian's death, reports say.

Michael Jones' sentencing is slated for May 3.
