Police commenced an investigation after she was found dead at the scene.
Following the investigation, Ms Wappett, of Alstonville was charged and granted conditional bail.
She faces a maximum of 10 years jail if convicted over the incident.
The court previously heard Ms Wappett’s solicitor Ian McKay had requested a report from a pharmacist on his client to support his case.
On Thursday, Judge Laura Wells adjourned Ms Wappett’s matters until August 17.
Her matters will be mentioned on that day to confirm both parties are ready to go to trial beginning August 21.
Ms Wappett remains free on conditional bail.
