The older son of a Texas woman charged with killing her younger boy and disposing of his body on a rural Maine road says his mother still won't explain her motivation.

Ian McCrery had talked to his mother, Julianne McCrery, via phone, but visited her Tuesday in the New Hampshire jail where she's being held without bail on a second-degree murder charge.

Prosecutors say the 42-year-old Irving, Texas woman killed 6-year-old Camden Hughes in New Hampshire last month and left his body in Maine.

Ian McCrery says they spent most of their time reminiscing about happier times and comforting each other.

He says he asked his mother why, but she broke down and didn't want to talk.

Ian McCrery says his busy schedule in the Navy has helped him cope.
