In court on Thursday, she waived her right to a probable cause hearing. Weathers is out on bond, but still can be indicted by a Grand Jury.
Weathers' 18-month-old son died at the beginning of May.
Her boyfriend, William Lail, is charged with his murder. Investigators say he was babysitting the boy at the time.
The child's 3-year-old sister was also taken to the hospital with burns.
