MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Baby Aniston Walker's grandmother shared new details about  what happened in the moments Andrea Walker realized the infant disappeared Jan. 10.

The 33-year-old mother, accused of killing the 7-week-old infant, was due in court Thursday morning, but the judge delayed the hearing as they wait for more information from the medical examiner.

FOX13 News obtained new documents on the Memphis Police investigation. A search warrant reveals homicide detectives took computers, cellphones, and electronics from the house.

They also found an e-mail on Walker's cellphone that she sent to the child's father. It reads, "Your baby in week 6; crying more than ever."
 
These court papers also say Walker changed her story several times and she wasn't cooperating. Walker's mother told FOX13 News that her daughter was cooperating. She said police zeroed in on her daughter from the start of the investigation.

"She called me instead of calling the police right away," said Andrea Walker's mother.

Baby Aniston's grandmother said she went to her daughter Andrea's house after she learned the seven-week-old infant disappeared.

"I stayed there with the youngest child while she went and searched for the baby, and she did call the police also but they only gave him credit," the grandmother said.

The grandmother talking about the baby's father, police say he was the first to report the baby missing. She visited FOX13 News Wednesday evening to defend her daughter. We agreed to obscure her face.

Her daughter Andrea is in Jail East facing a first degree murder charge, accused of killing Baby Aniston. But she says Andrea didn't do it. Other people had access to the home.

But when FOX13 News anchor Darrell Greene asked who is responsible, the grandmother said she was unsure.

"I'm not sure," he said. I'm just telling you that she would not harm her child."

Her mother said Andrea has been on suicide watch since she was arrested Feb. 17. She said she's being held alone under 24-hour watch.
 
"I've spoken to her and she still praying that there's hope that Aniston might be somewhere else," she said. You know, there's hope."

She says she's not convinced her granddaughter was found in a ditch near Jones Orchard in Millington on Feb. 16. She says she won't believe it until she sees the report from the medical examiner.

"I was told that the baby had on a onesie with footballs on it," she said. "Now what person would put a football on a little girl? Our baby? We bought clothes for that baby from age birth to two years before she was born and we chose her colors were purple and tan."

Homicide investigators are confident Aniston Walker's body was found in Millington.

A spokesman for Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich said the case against Walker is moving forward. He said if Andrea Walker's mother has additional details about what happened she needs to tell the District Attorney's Office and the Memphis Police Department.
