Police in the American state of Kansas have arrested a 44-year-old man on suspicion of murdering his son and feeding his body to his pigs.

Michael A. Jones is currently being held on charges of aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated battery, and child abuse. He was arrested after police visited his home to investigate reports of domestic violence. Jones is said to have attacked and shot at his wife, Heather (29). During the investigation, police discovered human remains in the barn where the pigs were kept, according to KCTV. The remains are thought to belong to Jones' seven-year-old son, known only as A.J., who neighbours said they had not seen in months.

'For those girls to have to witness what their brother went through...'

Jones has been charged with with "torturing or cruelly beating" A.J. sometime between May and September.

The boy was one of seven children who lived with the couple. The six remaining children –- all girls aged from 2 to 10 -- have been removed to a place of safety.

“Their house was horrible. The kids lived in filth. Trash everywhere, dried food all over the house,” a woman told local media. She was one of two babysitters who sometimes helped care for the children.

“For those girls to have to witness what their brother went through; for them to have to carry the burden, knowing something happened to their brother. It’s horrible,” she said.

Jones' bail has been set at an enormously high R140 million -- more than most murders.

District Attorney Jerome Gorman said he thought the child abuse charge would be “the tip of the iceberg.” He called it one of the worst cases he had ever seen.

“I don’t believe you’ve seen the end of charges yet." Jones will next appear in court on 8 December.
