LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas man charged with capital murder in the deaths of his two sons will remain jailed without bond.
A Leavenworth County judge ordered Donald R. Jackson Jr. held without bond during his first court appearance on Friday, The Leavenworth Times reported.
Jackson, 40, is charged with capital murder in the deaths of 12-year-old Austin Jackson and 14-year-old Logan Jackson, whose bodies were found at their home in Leavenworth on Oct. 24.
Authorities allege Jackson then fled his two young daughters, who were with him when he was arrested in Oklahoma.
Jackson was returned to Kansas on Thursday, Leavenworth County Undersheriff Jim Sherley said.
Jackson’s next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 16.
