The woman accused of killing her own son eight years ago appeared in court on Tuesday, her sentencing however was pushed back to March 20.

Alexis Dixon pleaded no contest in February to two felonies: voluntary manslaughter and willful cruelty to a child in the death of 4-year-old Markey Dixon.

She claimed her son fell off the table, but investigators found his injuries showed otherwise.

Dixon faces up to 12 years and four months in prison.
