BURLEY, Idaho (AP) - Police in south-central Idaho say a teenager helped his father destroy evidence and clean up the bloody murder scene of a woman’s death.

The Times-News (https://bit.ly/1QPBDh7 ) reports that recently unsealed court documents say 17-year-old Ronnie Gene Kincaid III helped put the woman’s body in the shower to wash away blood and DNA evidence - activity that police say Kincaid III lied about earlier. He has since been charged as an adult for concealing evidence and withholding knowledge from police.

Police found Melissia Kincaid dead Sept. 6 in the family’s home. An autopsy determined that the woman had bled to death from vaginal and anal trauma. There were five children in the house at time of death, including Kincaid III.

Kincaid III’s father, 34-year-old Ronnie Kincaid Jr., is charged with first-degree murder.

According to court documents, the elder Kincaid said he and his wife had bloody sex after coming home from a date. During which, the children in the home heard her scream for 20 minutes.

The coroner’s report shows that an object was used to cause the injuries that led to her bleeding to death. The report concludes she died within 15 minutes of her injuries.

The father and son then put the woman in the shower around 2 a.m. They would later tell police they splashed water on her face to revive her.

At about 9 a.m., Kincaid Jr. called the police reporting that his wife was unresponsive. Blood was found by police in the hallway, bathroom and outside the home.

Kincaid Jr. was convicted of rape in Oregon in 2001. He is being held on a $5 million bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 16.

Kincaid III has not yet been scheduled for a preliminary hearing.
