Mom Charged in Son's 1991 Murder Due in Court

A Florida woman charged in the 1991 death of her 5-year-old son is scheduled to make her first appearance in a New Jersey courtroom.

Middlesex County prosecutors say Michelle Lodzinski is due to appear Tuesday in New Brunswick. She is charged with killing Timothy Wiltsey, but her attorney has said she "adamantly denies" the charges.

The 46-year-old Lodzinski has been in custody since her arrest Aug. 7. She's was extradited to New Jersey on Friday and is being held in the county jail on $2 million bail.

She had said her son disappeared at a carnival, but investigators said her story kept changing. His skeletal remains were found in a marshy area of Edison 11 months later.

A county grand jury charged her in an indictment handed up in July.
