Autopsy results show a Baldwin County newborn found in a shallow grave in October drowned.
Baldwin County Sheriff Bill Massee said deputies will meet with prosecutors to review the case and determine whether any new charges should be brought against the childs mother, 23-year-old Brittany Palmer.
The autopsy didnt go into detail as to how the baby drowned, Massee said.
Palmer was charged last fall with concealing a death and giving false statements in the days after her father found the babys body on his Lakemere Lane property Oct. 17.
Palmers didnt know his daughter had been pregnant until after he found the babys body, according to the Baldwin County Sheriffs Office.
Investigators determined Palmer carried the child to full term, gave birth alone in a bathtub and then buried the child, Massee said.
Attempts to reach Brittany Palmer for comment were unsuccessful Wednesday.
She was released on $10,000 bond Nov. 16, according to the sheriffs office.
