Texas Mom To Plead Guilty In Death Of Son In NH

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A Texas woman accused of killing her 6-year-old son in New Hampshire and disposing of his body in rural Maine is heading to court to plead guilty.

Forty-two-year-old Julianne McCrery is charged with second-degree murder in the death of her son, Camden Hughes. She's due to make the plea in court Friday morning.

Her deal calls for a sentence of 45 years to life in prison.

The discovery of Camden's body in May under a blanket on a dirt road launched a nationwide effort to identify him. Even as that was under way, McCrery called her son's Texas school daily to report him absent.

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.

    A popular Nocona restaurant is serving up food once again after shutting down from fire damage. Bear's Den Diner caught fire two months ago after a trailer only feet away caught fire and heavy winds spread it to the restaurant. Bear Weller, the owner, said the only reason his kitchen is open is that of his customers.
