Carol Berner, the woman convicted and sentenced in connection with the May 2008 death of four-year-old Alexa Middelaer, is to have her appeal heard Nov. 10.
The date – to address her conviction – was set during a brief appearance in B.C. Court of Appeal Thursday.
Berner, 58, was convicted of impaired and dangerous driving last July, following a four-week trial in Surrey Provincial Court. Her sentence included 2½ years in prison and a five-year driving prohibition.
She learned in November that an appeal of her conviction and sentence had merit, however, a date for the hearing was not set, and she was released on bail.
Her bail, which last month had been extended until July 15, was further extended until the November hearing during today’s appearance.
