NEW BRUNSWICK - The first day of jury deliberations has concluded in the trial of a mother charged with killing her 5-year-old son in 1991.
Jurors began deliberating in Michelle Lodzinski's case Thursday afternoon. Before deliberations ended for the day, jurors asked the judge to see transcripts from a retired medical examiner and a school nurse.
They will get to hear that testimony again Friday and then deliberations are expected to resume.
Lodzinski was charged in 2014 with the murder of her son Timothy Wiltsey after investigators reopened the case. She was living in Florida at the time.
Lodzinski first said her son disappeared while they were at a Sayreville carnival. She then said he had been kidnapped from there.
Prosecutors say the boy was never at the carnival and that Lodzinski killed him elsewhere. His remains were found in 1992 in a marshy area a few miles away.
Her attorney says eyewitness testimony and a lack of forensic evidence are enough to cast serious doubt on the case against her.
