NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 21/02/2017

A 65-year-old woman will stand trial later this year after being accused of the murder of a toddler in south Auckland.

Kathleen Elizabeth Cooper appeared in the High Court at Auckland on Wednesday charged with the two-year-old boy's death in Manurewa in 2015.

Police said the child was admitted to Starship Hospital with head injuries on December 13, 2015, and died five days later.

Cooper denies the charge and has been remanded on bail until her trial, which has been set down for three weeks from July 31.
