Bad move on his part in my opinion. He's in jail and can't post the bond. Don't give away probable cause without a hearing. Make the prosecutor perform every stinking step of the process. Unfortunately, Jones probably talked to police during an "interview" and that was another critical error.

His friend may have committed a murder. If Jones gave him a ride to Lowe's to buy garbage bags, that should not make him an accessory to murder. The prosecutor has to prove a lot more than that. They will overcharge in the hope that the supposed accessory will give up information that will help the murder case. Then they will plea or drop the case against Jones that never existed in the first place. In other words, they want something for nothing.( I made up the Lowe's part for illustration purposes only.)

Jones already confessed. He also just waived his hearing for a trial. He say's he can tell the cops where the kids are for a plea deal. I doubt he'll get one unless those kids are alive. Fat Chance, Jones. Have fun at the trial. LOL

Maybe they told him he could go home if he told the truth. "Man up. Tell us the truth and you will feel better. You will feel better and we can all get out of here."

Nah, it was his Attorney that convinced him to "hold out" I bet. But he's not getting a deal, unless there's something to "deal" for. He might just go down with three counts of murder. I would believe that they CAN do that since the mom was found Murdered and there's no evidence but "his word" to say that the kids are in any better condition. But I'll keep my fingers crossed.
