The body of her son, Camden Hughes, was found under a blanket on a back road in South Berwick, Maine, on May 14. Authorities launched a nationwide appeal in search of his identity and his killer.

McCrery was arrested May 17 at a Massachusetts truck stop and arraigned in New Hampshire on a charge of second-degree murder.
