MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The mother of a 7-week-old Memphis baby who went missing more than five weeks ago has been charged with first-degree murder, a day after the infant's body was discovered in a ditch in Millington, about a half-hour north of Memphis.

Memphis police confirmed on Monday that the physical description and clothing on the baby matched that of Aniston Walker, who was reported missing on Jan. 9.

The baby's mother, Andrea Walker, told police Aniston disappeared after she left the baby at home with her 3-year-old child while taking her 5-year-old child to school.

Walker earlier pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated child abuse or neglect and had been free on $250,000 bond.

Police said Walker turned herself in on Monday afternoon.
