A Regina woman who is accused of killing a toddler is the child's mother, confirmed a spokesperson for the Regina Police Service.
Brittney Catherine Emma Burghardt, 26, is charged with second-degree murder, accessory after the fact and forcible confinement.
A co-accused, Justin Noah Paul Anderson, 24, has also been charged with accessory after the fact and forcible confinement. Police say he is not the child's father, but is in a relationship with Burghardt.
On June 9, Burghardt's daughter was airlifted to a Saskatoon hospital with serious injuries.
Police say the child was injured after falling down a set of stairs at a home on the 2300 block of Retallack Street.
Police said the child died on June 13, a month shy of her third birthday.
The death is Regina's seventh homicide of 2021.
