Dad who murdered his five young children thought they were going to 'kill him, chop him up and feed him to the dogs'
A south Carolina father who killed his five young children said he believed that his kids 'were going to kill him, chop him up and feed him to the dogs,' according to an arrest warrant released yesterday.
Police say that Timothy Ray Jones killed his children-aged eight, seven, six, two and one years old- at his home in Lexington, South Carolina then put their bodies in plastic trash bags and drove them around for nine days around the Southeast.
CBS reports that the warrant says that authorities found blood in his car and found handwritten notes about chopping up bodies after he was stopped at a DUI checkpoint in Mississippi on September 6.
Even though a warrant was released last week, Lexington County deputies kept some of the information hidden.
Daniel Jones, the district attorney of Smith County, Mississippi, who is not related to Jones Jr. says he thinks that the cuckolded father went crazy.
'I think he probably just went mad,' said the prosecutor
Jones faces charges for unlawful neglect of a child and he also faces five counts of murder.
Jones' attorney says he has been treated for mental illness in the past and they want a mental evaluation to performed on him as soon as possible.
Timothy Ray Jones Jr earned his computer engineering degree, worked at a $71,000-a-year job, had a wife of ten years and several young children.
Then, just over two years ago, he discovered his wife Amber was putting their children to bed in their South Carolina home and going to the neighbor's house and sleeping with the neighbor's 19-year-old son, according to divorce papers.
Jay Pettifer had shared a close, loving relationship with her father Ray. She confided in him. He advised her. Their bond felt inalienable.
But when she phoned him to say she was getting married, the conversation was terse and tense, the shortest and sharpest exchange she'd ever had with him.
'I rang Dad to say we'd booked the register office,' she recalls, 'and there was silence. I told him the date and asked if he'd give me away. He said he wouldn't. And then the line went dead.'
Ray Urquhart's only child, his adored daughter, was preparing to be a bride, but instead of paternal pride and delight, he felt a queasy sense of dread. Anthony Pettifer, the man Jay was marrying was decent, loyal, hard working. He had a good job as a computer programmer; he owned his own home and had never previously been married. So what was the problem? Why did Ray, 68, feel such disquiet?
