A 25-year-old Lawrence woman charged in the death of her 5-year-old son has waived her preliminary hearing.

Rebecca Lynne Wynne was charged with reckless involuntary manslaughter after her son died in April after he swallowed opiates at Wynne's home. She waived her preliminary hearing Thursday in Douglas County District Court.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Wynne also is charged with two counts of aggravated child endangerment involving her other children, ages 6 and 4, who were in the home at the time of her son's death. The children are now in protective custody.

Wynne is scheduled to be arraigned on Nov. 1.
