Paul Jones, the father of a missing 13-year-old, has been charged with murder, according to Metro Police.

Police believe the decomposed body found Tuesday in a desert area near Boulder Highway and Sahara Avenue may be that of 13-year-old Aaron Jones who has not been seen by family members since Dec. 2016. 

Police say they have developed substantial information on the disappearance and murder or Aaron Jones.

More charges are pending as the Clark County District Attorney reviews the case.

Jones remains in custody at the Clark County Detention Center where he has been since April 1, 2017 on an unrelated charge.
