(NBC News) The South Carolina man accused of killing his five kids waved his right to appear in court on Friday.
Police alledge that 32-year old Timothy Ray Jones killed his children and placed their bodies in garbage bags before dumping the corpses in a wooded area of Alabama.
Officers say he was acting strange during a routine stop at a vehicle inspection checkpoint. “They saw blood, they saw children’s clothes but no children and they placed him under arrest,” said Sheriff Lewis McCarty of the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.
Investigators say he led them to a remote Alabama hilltop where the kids decomposing bodies were found, but Jones has apparently said little else to police.
32-year old Timothy Ray Jones faces five counts of first degree murder.
