(Scroll down for video) A father was arrested on charges of murder after allegedly killing his five young children and placing their bodies in garbage bags, police in Mississippi said.
Now, 32-year-old Timothy Ray Jones from South Carolina, led police to the places where he buried his children.
He was caught after being pulled over at a checkpoint. Jones was arrested on Saturday, after he seemed to be driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
The suspect, who is divorced from his children’s mother and shared custody, was arrested after police found his name on a list compiled by the National Crime Information Center.
His former wife reported him and the children missing last week. Jones buried his children in Alabama. He admitted that he killed his children, aged between 1 and 8.
The children were identified as Merah, 8, Elias, 7, Nathan, 6, Gabriel, 2, and Abigail, 1. Several months ago, Jones had been investigated on a child abuse complaint.
