The mother of a murder suspect says she's certain her daughter is guilty. The daughter is accused of a killing her own 6 year old boy.

News on 6 reporter Emory Bryan says this is a complicated case. The suspect's mother is the victim's grandmother. She's having to deal with the loss of a grandson and the trial that's coming for her daughter, Katherine Rutan.

Connie Henson lives in Tulsa. She's the grandmother. Her grandson - 6 year old Logan Tucker has been missing for four years.

Authorities believe Katherine Rutan killed him, and they arrested her last Friday. Henson has believed all along that her daughter killed Logan and that she didn't want her other child either. "She would call my husband and me all the time and tell me to come get the boys, she was about to kill them. Everytime she broke up with a man, she wanted us to take the boys."

Authorities in Woodward have searched without finding the body. Logan's little brother told the FBI he saw his mother bury Logan but he couldn't lead them back to where it happened.

The Katherine Rutan is in jail and she's maintained her innocence all along.
