Texas Mom to Plead Guilty in Death of Son in NH

Updated 3 years ago

Court officials say a Texas woman accused of killing her 6-year-old son in New Hampshire and disposing of his body in rural Maine will plead guilty. Forty-two-year-old Julianne McCrery will plead guilty to second-degree murder in Camden Hughes’ death. A clerk in New Hampshire’s Rockingham Superior Court confirmed McCrery has filed a notice of intent to plead guilty and will be sentenced to 45 years to life in prison. No date has been set for her to formally enter her plea. The boy’s body was found alongside a dirt road in Maine in May. A medical examiner says Camden died of asphyxiation. The mother and son had stayed in a New Hampshire motel the weekend before his body was discovered. (AP)
