Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash-- The woman accused of murdering another woman and cutting out her baby appeared in court today. 
Phien Sisouvanh was supposed to make a plea, but her defense attorneys say they still need more time to get a death penalty certified attorney before she can be arraigned.

The judge also gave the defense another week to hold the victim's body in case the new lawyer wants to do a second autopsy.

The baby boy is still at a hospital in Spokane. His condition has improved from critcal to serious.
