South Carolina Man Charged With Murders Of His Five Children Convicted-Might Face Death Penalty

A South Carolina man after reportedly confessing the murders of his five children has been arrested.

According to a source, 37-year-old Timothy Jones Jr. killed his children, ages 8, 7, 6, 2 and 1, in their Lexington home in August 2014. Police say he drove their bodies around for a week, buried them in Alabama and was arrested in Mississippi.

Jones, 37, was a software engineer and was given custody of his children after his marriage started to fall apart.

The computer engineer struggled as a single father, according to records from the Department of Social Services, whose employees visited the home a dozen times in three years.
