LEXINGTON, SC - Records describe a South Carolina man who has confessed to killing his five children as a highly intelligent, responsible father who was given primary custody after a messy divorce.

Divorce records say 32-year-old Timothy Ray Jones Jr. was an Intel engineer and made more than $70,000 a year. The file says his wife didn't work outside the home or have a driver's license.

Jones and his wife divorced in October, and records note his wife was having an affair with a neighbor. Jones was given primary custody, and the therapist called him a "responsible father."

Authorities say Jones will be charged with murder when he's returned to South Carolina. He led authorities to the children's bodies along a rural Alabama road on Tuesday after his arrest in Mississippi.
