HORN LAKE, Miss. — The father of an 11-year-old and the child’s stepmother have been indicted for capital murder.

Jack and Amanda Raines are charged with the death of Justin Tyler Raines.

The child weighed only 56 pounds when he was found dead last February in family’s home.

At the time, assistant district attorney Steven Jubera told us, “I can speak personally, shock horror. I don’t’ think anybody who saw the child will ever be left unaffected.”

A trial has been scheduled for September.

Several other children in the home were taken into protective custody.
