The Taos County Sheriff suspects the remains are those of missing Georgia boy Abdul-ghani Wahhaj.

His father, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, is one of the suspects arrested after last Friday's raid. He was wanted for abducting the child in December.

Wahhaj and the four other adults arrested at the compound will return to court Monday.

One suspect, Jany Leveille, was supposed to have her hearing Friday, but it was postponed.

All five suspects face child abuse charges. The prosecutor wants them held in jail until their trial.

The 11 children who were rescued from the compound are in foster care
