FRISCO, Texas (AP) A North Texas woman has been charged with murdering her 10-year-old son, whose body was found in a bathtub in the family's suburban Dallas home.

Pallavi Dhawan was booked Thursday into the Frisco City Jail with bond set at $50,000.

A Frisco police statement says the suspect's husband called officers to the family home Wednesday evening after he could not find his wife. The statement says Dhawan returned and told them that she had killed their son, Arnav Dhawan. Officers forced open a locked bathroom door and found the child's body in the tub, wrapped in a cloth up to his neck and with plastic bags in the tub around him.

Dhawan's attorney David Finn says his client denies admitting killing the child.

An autopsy has been ordered.
