Michael Wayne Jones Jr., A 38-year-old Florida resident, has been charged with second-degree murder for the death of his wife Casei Jones, 32. The woman and her children had disappeared several weeks ago and thanks to an incident vial the police discovered that the subject brought the corpse of his wife car.
The events occurred this Sunday in Brantley County, Georgia when police responded to an alert call for a van crash, according to The New York Times. Upon arriving at the incident site, Jones Jr. confessed that his wife's body was in the rear of the vehicle.
The man also revealed that he could take the police to where the remains of four children would be found: Cameron Bowers, 10; Preston Bowers, 5; Mercalli Jones, 2, and Aiyana Jones, just 1 year old. The place, he confessed, was in nearby Charlton County.

Nikki Jones, mother of the victim, worried about her daughter, not knowing anything about her in several weeks. Finally, the old woman resorted to the authorities to report the absence of her daughter and the children, two of whom are biological children of the suspect.
When police inspected the family's Summerfield home, they found it had been empty for weeks. One of the agents who participated in the operation reported the "bad smell of decomposition" in the house.
