Sheriff: Jones killed 5 kids at Lexington home

Good morning!

Here's what we're working on in the WAFF newsroom:

The man accused of killing his five children and dumping their bodies in rural Alabama will make his first court appearance later this morning.

32 year old Timothy Ray Jones Junior arrived back in Lexington South Carolina yesterday afternoon.  He's being held in the county jail this morning, with no bond.  Investigators in South Carolina released a new mug shot of him late last night.

As more information comes into our newsroom, we'll bring it to you on WAFF 48 News Today.

Another story we're working on is a Limestone County where a woman is in jail this morning, charged with animal cruelty.

The sheriff says she left her animals in a home without food or water for weeks.  Some, were already dead by the time investigators arrived. You can find the full story here:
