DOVER, N.H. — The Texas woman accused of killing her 6-year-old son in New Hampshire and disposing of his body in rural Maine has not yet been indicted by a grand jury despite a New Hampshire law requiring indictments to be returned within 90 days after the case is sent to superior court.

Julianne McCrery of Irving, Texas, is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to second-degree murder in connection with death of Camden Hughes in May.

She waived her right to a probable cause hearing May 26, sending her case to Rockingham Superior Court.

The prosecution can seek an extension.

The Portsmouth Herald reported that prosecutors had no comment, except to say any filings for an extension would be kept under seal and not part of the public record.
