AUSTIN, Texas — A jury has stripped right-wing radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones of having primary custody of his children and awarded joint custody to his ex-wife.

The Austin American-Statesman reported that state District Judge Orlinda Naranjo also announced that Kelly Jones will decide where their three children will live.

The Travis County jury deliberated Thursday afternoon and late into the night before returning its verdict.

In closing arguments, the ex-wife’s attorney told jurors the radio personality is a “cult leader” who is turning their children against her.
