NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - A forensic expert says that he doesn’t believe a blue blanket that’s a key piece of prosecution evidence belonged to a woman accused of killing her 5-year-old son in 1991.

NJ.com reports (https://bit.ly/1Sys5fL ) defense expert Nicholas Petraco told a judge Thursday there was a lack of trace evidence on the blue blanket, which was found in April 1992 by the boy’s skeletal remains.

Three prosecution witnesses have testified they saw the blue blanket in Lodzinski’s apartment prior to Timothy Wiltsey’s disappearance.

The judge must now determine if jurors can hear the New York Police Department forensic scientist’s testimony.

Michelle Lodzinski was charged in 2014 with killing her son in May 1991.

Lodzinski first said Timothy disappeared from a carnival, then said he was abducted.

His remains were found in a marshy area.
