MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Two lingering questions only science can answer re-set a court date for a Memphis mother accused of killing her 7-week-old daughter.

Andrea Walker, 33, was scheduled to be in court Thursday morning. Instead, her defense attorney, Leslie Ballin, appeared on her behalf, and the judge re-set Walker's appearance while the court awaits results from the medical examiner.

"Was it a homicide or not?" Ballin asked outside the courtroom. "I'm just waiting to hear what the medical examiner has to say."

Ballin says they are also awaiting an official DNA analysis from the medical examiner to determine whether the baby found dead in the ditch near Jones Orchard is indeed Walker's daughter.

Walker remains locked up at jail east without bond. She is scheduled to be in court on March 17.
