DALLAS (AP) — Police say skeletal remains found in a rural creek near Dallas are those of a 10-year-old boy allegedly starved to death by his father and stepmother.

Dallas police say they confirmed with the Dallas County Medical Examiner that DNA tests have linked the remains to Johnathan Ramsey. The boy’s remains were found April 21 in rural Ellis County south of Dallas.

The medical examiner declined to comment on the case.

Police have jailed the boy’s father and stepmother, Aaron and Elizabeth Ramsey, on charges of felony injury to a child. It was not immediately clear Monday afternoon if those charges would now be upgraded.

According to police records, Aaron Ramsey allegedly told investigators he starved the boy and confined him to the bedroom of his Dallas home as punishment.
