Texas Mom Sentenced to 45 Years for killing 6 Year Old Son
A Texas woman who suffocated her 6-year-old son in a New Hampshire motel room and left his body off a dirt road in Maine is expected to make a statement about the crime at her sentencing.
The mother of 42-year-old Julianne McCreary told the Associated Press her daughter will make a statement before being sentenced to 45 years in prison on Friday.
Julianne McCreary pleaded guilty in November to kneeling atop 6-year-old Camden Hughes as he laid face-down on their motel room floor. She told investigators she covered his mouth with her hand as he struggled to survive.
Discovery of Camden's body last May set off a nationwide effort
to identify him.
McCrery's family members, including a son on leave from the Navy, will attend the sentencing.
