The missing baby from Memphis, Tennessee's mother has been charged with murder after the 7-week-old's body was found in a ditch this past weekend. On Feb. 17, The Washington Post reported that Andrea Walker is facing a first-degree murder charge in the case. She previously plead not guilty to four other charges involving the disappearance of her daughter.

"Before Aniston’s body was discovered, Walker had pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated child abuse or neglect. She was free on $250,000 bond before she turned herself in on Monday," reports The Washington Post.

The mother charged in the missing baby case was a suspect from the beginning. As previously reported, baby Aniston went missing at the beginning of January. Andrea told police that she had left the child home with her toddler while she drove her 5-year-old to school. The baby was "gone" when Andrea returned to the house. Based on that story alone, police arrested Andrea and charged her with abuse and neglect while they began searching for the infant. Sadly the five plus week search has ended in tragedy.

"It is heartbreaking to confirm that an innocent child’s life has been taken but now family members of Aniston Walker can have closure and begin the healing process of losing a loved one," said Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong (via The Washington Post).

The missing baby's mother charges should land her behind bars for most (if not all) of the remainder of her life -- if there is enough evidence, that is.
