A TRIAL date has been set for a woman who pleaded not guilty to causing the deaths of her daughters four years ago.
Ronika Devi appeared before High Court judge Justice Priyantha Fernando on Tuesday.
She is represented by Legal Aid Commission lawyer Vuli Savou.
Ms Devi is alleged to have drowned her 58-day-old daughter and an elder daughter aged one year and eight months in January, 2008. Justice Fernando set the trial date at April 15 next year.
The court heard that prosecution would call 11 witnesses while defence would call six.
Ms Devi had been sentenced to life imprisonment on both counts and a minimum term of 20 years imprisonment for each count of murder was fixed.
However, on January 30 early this year, the Court of Appeal ordered a re-trial.
Presiding judges Justice William Marshall, Justice Daniel Goundar and Justice Salesi Temo ordered that the convictions and sentences of Ms Devi on two counts of murder be quashed and the convictions and sentences by the High Court withdrawn and annulled.
