Johnson County prosecutors said child pornography was found on the phone of a man accused of dismembering his wife's body last year.

The Kansas City Star reported prosecutors filed a motion Thursday seeking court permission to add three counts of sexual exploitation of a child to previous charges against 36-year-old Justin Rey.

Rey testified in September that he cut up his wife's body in a Lenexa storage unit. He had said she died at a Missouri hotel in October 2017.

Rey was scheduled to go on trial Monday on charges of child endangerment and contributing to a child's misconduct. He also faced charges in Missouri but was not charged in his wife's death.

In Thursday's motion, prosecutors said police found the child pornography while searching Rey's phone last month at his request.
