Amarillo, Texas - Charges of aggravated perjury have been filed against the father of a boy missing for years and found dead by police Monday.

36-year-old Robert Nunez was arrested Wednesday in Borger after an interview with police.

Police say the charges come from prior testimony in front of a grand jury earlier this year.

Police believe the mummified body of a dead baby boy found inside an ice chest in an Amarillo home is that of Miguel Angel Nunez. He was reported missing six years ago.

The Potter County District Attorney's office says Nunez is the only suspect in the case and additional charges may be presented as the investigation proceeds.

A preliminary autopsy failed to identify the body and cause of death. DNA and other tests will be done.
