(WYANDOTTE COUNTY, Ks.) The co-owner of Schiltterbahn Waterpark who was indicted last month on several charges including reckless second degree murder appeared in court Thursday.


The charges stem from the death of 10-year-old Caleb Schwab after he was decapitated while riding on the Verruckt waterslide in August 2016.

Jeff Henry was booked into the Wyandotte County jail and was released after posting a $500,000 bond. Henry has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Two other men, John Schooley and Tyler Austin Miles, are also facing criminal charges.

The weekend will start to warm back up into the 50's and we should see more sunshine across the area. Much colder air is in the forecast for next week with highs only in the upper 20's and lower 30's.
