EAST BRUNSWICK - (AP) - A Florida woman arrested in the 1991 death of her 5-year-old son will soon return to New Jersey to face charges.
    
Michelle Lodzinski waived extradition when she appeared in court in Martin County, Florida, on Thursday.
    
Her attorney Robert Watson says the 46-year-old Lodzinski is looking forward to being able to let the facts speak.
    
Lodzinski was arrested Aug. 7 and charged with murder in the death of her son, Timothy Wiltsey. She had said the boy disappeared at a carnival. But investigators said her story kept changing.
    
His skeletal remains were found in a marshy area of Edison, New Jersey, 11 months later.
    
Investigators have not said what led them to charge Lodzinski.
    
Watson says he expects her to be transferred to New Jersey in about a week.
