A Texas dad is defending his wife who is charged with murdering their son.

Police say the 10-year-old was found in a bathtub last week covered with ice and surrounded by plastic bags.

His mother, Pallavi Dhawan, is charged with first-degree murder. Police said the mom admitted to murder with a nod of the head, but her family disputes that. The suspect's husband is standing by her.

Sumeet Dhawan said, "She knew he was no more. I think she realized she should have called the cops. And after a while, she realized she could not handle the situation. So maybe I should come handle it."

The father said his son had neurological problems, including seizures and a cyst on the brain.

The medical examiner hasn't established a cause of death.
