JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Two people involved in a weekend Jones County hostage situation appeared in court Tuesday afternoon.

Daniel Hodge and Megan Fuentes were each arrested on multiple charges after they held Hodge's parents and their 4-year-old child hostage at a home Sunday night.

Hodge was charged with felonious child abuse and given a $150,000 bond. His bond was revoked because he was already out on bond for a previous charge.

Fuentes was charged with felonious child abuse and was given a $50,000. She was also charged with aggravated assault, domestic violence and was given an addition $50,000 bond.

She also tacked on two additional charges of simple assault on a police officer after she threw her feces and urine at an officer on Monday from her jail cell. She was given an additional $50,000 bond for those charges.
