The crime occurred in a family home near Lexington, Kentucky, in the United States. 37-year-old Tim Jones was sentenced in May 2019 to the murder of his five children aged one to eight.
According to the US television channel BBCthe man would be angry when he saw one of the children play with a nest. After killing the six-year-old boy, Tim decided to strangle the other four children.
Then the man wrapped the corpses in plastic cover, put them in the car and drove for nine hours. He eventually abandoned the carcasses in a rural area in Alabama.
During Tim Jones's trial, Amber Kiser said she does not want her ex-husband to be sentenced to death because, despite the "woman's cruelty," she said she spoke "on behalf of her children" and that she "loved" father.
