A pretrial hearing was postponed Friday, June 15, for Jennifer Bigham, a 25-year-old Castro Valley woman who has pleaded not guilty in the 2010 drowning death of her 3-year-old daughter.

The next hearing will take place Friday, June 29.

Bigham’s attorney, Marlon Simon of Modesto, said Friday that more mental health evaluations are taking place, causing the two-week delay.

Bigham faces charges that she drowned her daughter, Alexandrea, in a bathtub while they visited a house on the 400 block of Thrush Drive in Patterson on Jan. 14, 2010.

The district attorney’s charges include murder, child abuse resulting in death and battery on a paramedic. Bigham pleaded not guilty to all the charges, which are two felonies and a misdemeanor.

Her bail is set at $2 million. She remains at Stanislaus County Public Safety Center in Modesto.
