Woman accused of child’s murder faces trial

  • 09/03/2016

A woman accused of murdering a four-year-old girl in Auckland could stand trial in November.

Maggie Renee Watson was found dead in her Onehunga home in August last year.

A 44-year-old woman charged with the girl's murder appeared in the High Court in Auckland on Wednesday where she had her name suppression extended.

She has yet to enter a plea.

Justice Simon Moore set a tentative date for a four-week trial in November, pending several reports.

The woman has been remanded in custody and will appear again in May.
