The person at the center of an investigation into the death of a 3-year-old boy whose remains were found encased in concrete in a Wichita home says he didn't do it. 

Stephen Bodine is jailed in Sedgwick County for aggravated assault and criminal damage to property. On September 2, Evan Brewer's body was found in a concrete structure at a rental home where Bodine lived with the boy's mother, Miranda Miller. 

Bodine and Miller were jailed August 30th on other charges.

Bodine told KAKE News in an exclusive jailhouse interview on Tuesday that he last saw his girlfriend's son in May, but he wouldn't say where he last saw the boy.

Deb Farris: "Did you realize they found brewers body in Miranda Miller's home?"

Bodine: "I saw that on the news."

Deb Farris: "What did you think when you saw that?

Bodine: "Mix of things."

Deb Farris: "For example? 

Bodine: "I don't have an answer for that." 

Deb Farris: "Did you kill Evan Brewer?"

Bodine: "No, I did not."

Deb Farris: "Did Miranda?"

Bodine: "Not that I know of." 

When we asked Bodine about the concrete structure in which police found Evan's body, he quickly ended the interview and walked away. Police are still waiting on a cause of death in the case. 

Miller declined to answer any of our questions.

Miller remains jailed for aggravated interference with child custody. She and Bodine are held on $25,000 bond each.
