Prosecutors say a New Jersey mother killed her 17-month-old son because she felt he was getting in the way of her extramarital affair.
The allegation came Wednesday during a detention hearing for Heather Reynolds. The Gloucester Township resident is charged with murder and child endangerment in the May 2010 death.
Camden County prosecutors say Heather Reynolds suffocated her son by holding a cleansing wipe over his nose and mouth.
Her attorney says she had nothing to do with the death.
