Deputy District Attorney Crystalyn Oswald argued there is “no manifest injustice,” as required by Kansas law to withdraw a guilty plea.

Judge Mike Grosko says he hopes to issue a decision within 60 days.

Adrian Jones’ remains were found in a pigsty outside the family home in November 2015.

Jones’ wife and Adrian’s stepmother, 31-year-old Heather Jones, is also serving a life sentence after pleading guilty to first-degree murder and child abuse.
