Defense rests in trial of NJ mom accused of killing son in 1991
NEW BRUNSWICK — The murder trial of a former New Jersey woman accused of killing her 5-year-old son in 1991 is nearing its conclusion.
Both sides rested their cases Tuesday in the trial of Michelle Lodzinski. Closing arguments are scheduled to start Wednesday morning.
Lodzinski was arrested in 2014 in Port St. Lucie, Florida, where she was living. She had long been a suspect in Timothy Wiltsey's disappearance, and she chose not to testify during her trial, which started in mid-March.
Lodzinski had said her son vanished while they were at a carnival in Sayreville in May 1991. His remains were found the following year in a creek in Raritan Center in Edison.
Lodzinski later changed her story several times, saying Timothy had been kidnapped from the carnival.
