Woman charged in son’s death awaits hearing
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — The woman arrested in the murder of her 5-year-old son more than two decades ago is still awaiting an extradition hearing in Florida.
Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey said Friday afternoon that there’s no indication of when an extradition hearing will be held for Michelle Lodzinski, who was arrested Wednesday.
The 47-year-old was held without bail by a Florida judge after a court appearance Thursday.
It wasn’t known whether she would agree to return to New Jersey, where a judge set her bail at $2 million. She appeared on camera from jail wearing an orange jumpsuit and did not yet have an attorney.
Lodzinski told authorities her son, Timothy Wiltsey, had disappeared at a carnival in Sayreville, New Jersey, in May 1991. The boy’s remains were found in April 1992.
