(WMC) - Bond for Andrea Walker was set at $600,000 in court on Friday morning.

Walker is accused of killing her newborn baby, Aniston. The body of 7-week-old Aniston Walker was found in a Millington ditch in February.

Walker is indicted on a first-degree murder charge for the baby's death. She told Memphis police officers that she left Aniston home alone with a 3-year-old boy in January. When she returned home, the baby was gone.

"I think it's a good bond," said state prosecutor Jennifer Nichols. "I think the judge considered the things that he has to, by law, and made a decision that bond is allowed in this case, because we're not asking for the death penalty."

Walker's attorney Leslie Ballin says the family will try to make bond.

"She has family support. We will talk with them as to whether or not we can make that bond, if she can then she will be out on bond," said Ballin.

They will only have to put up bond for the additional $350,000, because she already bonded out of a $250,000 bond from charges in February 4. Ballin says Walker still maintains her innocence and wants to be with her family.

"There is no flight risk. There is no danger to anybody else in the community, and we intend to defend these charges," said Ballin.
