Julianne McCrery is seen in court.

BRENTWOOD, N.H. (AP) - The Texas woman who has agreed to plead guilty to killing her 6-year-old son in New Hampshire and leaving his body on a remote Maine road will enter her plea next month.

Officials at Rockingham Superior Court say 42-year-old Julianne McCrery’s plea hearing is scheduled for Nov. 4. Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 13.

The Irving, Texas woman agreed to plead guilty Sept. 23 to second degree murder for the slaying of her son, Camden Hughes. He died of asphyxiation.

Prosecutors tell Foster’s Daily Democrat the plea hearing will ensure that McCrery has made her decision willfully, and that she is aware of the rights she is waiving with her plea, including the right to a jury trial and the right to call witnesses.

McCrery faces a 45-year sentence.
