Sask. woman charged with 2nd degree murder in infant daughter’s death
SASKATOON -- A 28-year-old woman is charged with second-degree murder in the death of her one-month-old daughter.
Teenie Rose Steer, of Kindersley, made her first court appearance at Rosetown Provincial Court on Thursday.
Kindersley RCMP responded Sept. 27, 2018 to a report of the girl in cardiac arrest. Lifesaving efforts were unsuccessful and she was pronounced dead at hospital, RCMP say.
An autopsy the next day led investigators to believe the death was suspicious.
Steer is scheduled to be back in court on March 12.
She has been ordered not to have any contact with three potential witnesses.
Steer has other three children besides the one who died.
A GoFundMe page had been set up for the little girl but it was deactivated.
