The woman accused of trying to take a newborn from Duke Hospital last month went before a Durham judge Monday morning.

Tanisha Weaver's attorney met with the prosecutor before the judge granted the defense a continuance. Now, the hearing is scheduled for June 8.

The June date will be for her probable cause hearing, but the prosecutor said there will be an indictment before then.

Weaver, 28, is charged with felony attempted child abduction. She allegedly tried to take a baby girl from the hospital's maternity ward on April 19. The child's mother told ABC11 Eyewitness News Weaver lured her out of her hospital room and away from her newborn.

The I-Team spoke exclusively with the mother last week.

The mother says she wants an apology from Weaver.

According to authorities, weeks before the incident at Duke Hospital, Weaver pulled a knife on a pregnant woman in a Lousiburg parking lot. And then in another incident, Weaver reportedly was caught on surveillance tape posing as a nurse and casing Maria Parham Hospital in Henderson.
