DOVER, N.H. (AP) — The Texas woman accused of killing her 6-year-old son in New Hampshire and leaving his body on a remote Maine road has been moved to a different jail.

Julianne McCrery of Irving, Texas has been moved to the Strafford County jail.

Foster’s Daily Democrat reports Friday that the 42-year-old woman was transferred last weekend because the Rockingham County jail in Brentwood has limited space to house female detainees.

Strafford County Administrator Ray Bower says the jail in Dover has the capacity to handle 60 to 100 women.

McCrery is being held without bail on a murder charge in connection with the death of her son, Camden Hughes, last month.

Authorities say she killed the boy in New Hampshire and disposed of the body in Maine. She was arrested in Massachusetts.
