LYMAN, N.H. (AP) - A woman accused of jumping out a second-story window over the summer with her 4-month-old twins, killing her son and severely injuring her daughter, has waived a hearing on the evidence against her.

Police said the 29-year-old Welch jumped out the window June 18 and landed on top of the boy. His twin sister is recovering. Prosecutors have not said if Welch was trying to kill herself.
