A man who was arrested after his infant son was found dead at a Sand Springs house pleaded guilty
Wednesday to two counts of child neglect.
One neglect count against Jobe Lee Jones involved the 6-month-old baby who died, but the charge did not allege that any conduct by Jones, 20, caused the infant's death.
A medical examiner ruled that the death of Daethe Anthony Ray Jones was "sudden unexplained infant death," Tulsa County District Judge Kurt Glassco said.
The medical examiner found no evidence of foul play and listed the manner of death as unknown, according to Glassco.
On Wednesday, Jones waived his right to a trial and pleaded guilty to both felony neglect counts. He also pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Glassco withheld any finding of guilt. He ordered Jones released from the Tulsa Jail on his personal recognizance to await a June 28 sentencing.
Police reported that the house was in "complete disarray," littered with empty beer cans, food wrappers, dirty dishes, ashtrays and marijuana smoking devices.
There were signs of rodent feces and "no food to speak of in the refrigerator," police reported.
