A trial date has been set for a 65-year-old accused of killing a toddler in Manurewa, Auckland, in 2015.

Kathleen Elizabeth Cooper appeared in the Auckland High Court this morning.

She had earlier pleaded not guilty to a charge of murder after a 2-year-old suffered serious head injuries and was admitted to Starship Hospital in December, 2015.

The toddler died two weeks later.

A three-week trial was set down for the end of July.​
