FLORIDA (CNN) – A Florida man is on suicide watch after he was accused of killing his wife and kids.

Michael Jones, Jr. appeared in a Marion County courtroom Thursday.

The judge denied him bond during the hearing.

The 38-year-old is charged with murdering his wife, Casei. He was arrested after he was involved in a car crash in Georgia.

Deputies say Jones was driving around with his wife’s body. He then led deputies to the bodies of his wife’s four children. He fathered two of them.

The children ranged in age from 1 to 10.

According to deputies, Jones could face four more murder charges once the bodies are identified.
