(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.
