PORT ST. LUCIE, FL (WFLX) - Michelle Lodzinski of Port St. Lucie was arrested on murder charges in connection with the death of her 5-year-old son 23 years ago in New Jersey. 

Authorities picked her up Wednesday evening in  Martin County where she works.

Her son, Timothy Wiltsey, disappeared from a New Jersey carnival in 1991, and his remains were found in a field a few months later.

The arrest comes after authorities in New Jersey conducted a routine review of the cold case

Lodzinski is currently in the Martin County Jail where she will most likely await extradition to New Jersey.

Her bail is set at $2 million.
