KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas woman charged in the death of her 7-year-old stepson is being transferred to a state mental hospital for an evaluation.

Heather Jones and her husband, Michael Jones, are charged with murder in the death of Michael Jones’ son. They’re both in custody in on multi-million dollar bonds.

Police investigating a disturbance in November found juvenile remains in a livestock area on the couple’s Kansas City, Kansas, property. Authorities haven’t said if the remains were those of Michael Jones’ missing son. They also haven’t addressed reports that the remains were fed to pigs.

A spokeswoman for the Wyandotte County Detention Center says Heather Jones left Wednesday for Larned State Hospital to begin a mental health evaluation. It’s unclear how long the evaluation will take.

Michael Jones’ next court date is in June.
