A family friend says the body of a boy left along a dirt road in Maine is back in Texas for a funeral to be held this weekend.

Shirley Miller, a long-time friend in Texas, told the Associated Press Tuesday that the body of 6-year-old Camden Hughes is back on Texas soil. The funeral is scheduled for Saturday.

Camden's body was released Friday by the Maine medical examiner.

The boy's mother, Julianne McCrery, of Irving, Texas, is being held in New Hampshire, where she's charged with killing the boy before leaving him in South Berwick, Maine. She was originally detained in Massachusetts.

Miller says McCrery's father, her other son and the son's father traveled to Maine to retrieve Camden's remains. She says they didn't meet with Julianna McCrery.
