Mother of Memphis Baby Pleads Not Guilty

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A Memphis woman has pleaded not guilty in the death of her 7-week-old daughter, whose body was found more than five weeks after she went missing.

33-year-old Andrea Walker is being held without bond and is due to return to court Feb. 27. Walker's attorney expects to ask for a bond hearing.

Walker is charged with first-degree murder in the perpetration of aggravated child neglect or endangerment and aggravated child abuse.

Andrea Walker told police that Aniston Walker disappeared Jan. 9 after she left the baby at home with her 3-year-old child while taking her 5-year-old child to school.

Police searched for the baby with no results. On Sunday, a motorcyclist who has stopped in Millington saw the body in a ditch and called police.
