Mad mother Julianne McCrery, 42, will plead guilty to second-degree murder in the death of her son, Camden Hughes. While no date has been set officials say she will be receive 45 years to life in prison for her heinous crime.

And even as he lay dead, McCrery called his Texas elementary school daily to report that he was ill. The little boy died of asphyxiation. Texas records show that McCrery was arrested at least twice on prostitution charges and once for possession with intent to distribute drugs. In 2009, she was sentenced to one year in prison for a misdemeanor conviction of prostitution. In 2004, she was sentenced to three years of probation for a felony conviction of possession of a controlled substance.
She has been portrayed as a loving but deeply troubled woman whose violent mood swings would send her out onto the road. McCrery was arrested three days after Camden's body was found at a truck stop in Massachusetts. MORE FROM FOX NEWS
