A family friend says the Texas woman accused of killing her 6-year-old son last weekend in Maine was a caring mother who suffered mood swings that would prompt her to leave town.

Shirley Miller of Arlington, Texas, told The Associated Press that while Julianne "Julie" McCrery sometime would just "up and go" without telling anyone but she would always come back.

Miller says last fall the 42-year-old woman took her son Camden out of kindergarten and went to Seattle and Nebraska before returning to Texas where she was living with Miller's adult son.

"Miller says McCrery "was up one minute and down the next" but she would never have believed she'd hurt Camden, whose body was found alongside a road.

Miller says "I can't get past why."
