LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – There has been a delay in the case of a Louisville woman charged with the death of her 8-month-old.

Geneva Walters appeared in court Oct. 7 for a pre-trial hearing, but it was postponed until next month.

Walters told police she gave her son adult-strength pain killers and left him in a bathtub.

Last month, Judge Olu Stevens made a surprising decision by rejecting a plea deal reached between Walters' attorney and prosecutors. So Walters withdrew her guilty plea to reckless homicide and instead decided to go to trial.

If convicted, Walters could faces up to 15 years in prison.
