PHOENIX (CBS5) -

The mother of missing 5-year-old Jhessye Shockley was back in court Tuesday.

Jerice Hunter is charged with first-degree murder and child abuse in the death of her daughter.

Her private attorney filed a motion to withdraw from the case because he hasn't been paid. Now a new attorney will be appointed to her.

Glendale police said they believe Jhessye was killed and her body was put in a Tempe trash bin.

Police searched the Butterfield Landfill in the south Valley for months without coming up with any leads on Jhessye.

On Oct. 11, 2011, Hunter reported to police that her daughter was missing.

Hunter has maintained her innocence.
