A court hearing for a Long Island mother suspected of drowning her three young children in a bathtub has been postponed.A spokesman for the Nassau District Attorney says Leatrice Brewer is still recovering from injuries she suffered when she jumped from a second-floor apartment in New Cassel last Sunday morning after calling 911 to report she had killed her three children, ages 6, 5 and 18 months.

Police do not know why the woman jumped from the window, but do not believe it was a suicide attempt.

A Legal Aid attorney entered a not guilty plea to murder charges on her behalf earlier this week. Brewer's court case was adjourned until March 7.
