A Langley mother charged with the murder of her seven-year-old daughter returned to Surrey Provincial Court on Monday.

There is a publication ban on the pre-trial appearances by Kerryann Lewis, charged with second degree murder in the death of Aaliyah Rosa, who was found dead in a Langley apartment complex in July.

In response to a Black Press query, Dan McLaughlin, a spokesperson for the Crown Counsel’s office, said no new charges have been laid.

“There are no changes to the charge she is facing,” McLaughlin said.

Lewis is to return to court on Jan.30 for an arraignment hearing.
