A pre-trial conference Nov. 13 for a Kindersley mom accused of killing her one-month-old baby was adjourned in Saskatoon Court of Queen’s Bench to Dec. 18.

Teenie Rose Steer, 28, is charged with second-degree murder for allegedly killing her daughter two years ago.

Pre-trial conferences are closed to the public and media. They are informal meetings in chambers between the Crown and defence. They are held for criminal cases in Saskatchewan.

Steer has been in custody since her arrest February 2020.

Kindersley RCMP say on Sept. 27, 2018, they responded to a report of a baby in cardiac arrest. Both EMS and hospital doctors tried unsuccessfully to save the infant. Police say information from an autopsy led them to believe the baby’s death was suspicious and RCMP Major Crimes Unit took over the investigation.

The charges against Steer haven’t been proven in court.
