MORENCI (WWJ) – The father of three missing Morenci boys will be back in court Wednesday to face additional charges.

The Lenawee County Prosecutor’s Office has added three charges each of kidnapping and unlawful imprisonment against 39-year-old John Skelton. The new counts are in addition to three counts of parental kidnapping Skelton already faces. His boys — ages 9, 7 and 5 — have been missing since November.
