KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jeff Henry, one of the men charged in the death of 10-year-old Caleb Schwab at Schlitterbahn water park, did not appear with his attorney in court today.

His attorney stated Henry is at an inpatient facility in Houston, Texas.

His attorney asked the judge to stay his bench warrant until Jan. 24, 2019 when Henry returns for his other case.

The attorney said Henry will begin an intensive outpatient program while in Houston.

The state told the judge they were fine with the suggestion from Henry's attorney, since they've been in touch with authorities there and they say they’ve had no issues with Henry.

Henry has a $50,000 cash and surety bond and is under house arrest.
