Human remains found in Queensland dam belong to missing toddler

Human remains found in a Queensland dam are those of three-year-old Kaydence Mills.

Police found bones at the Chinchilla Weir, about 300 kilometres west of Brisbane, in March.

They announced on Monday forensic testing proved they belonged to the young girl.

Detectives uncovered the skeletal remains days after charging Kaydence's mother Sinitta Dawita, 28, with her murder.

Dawita's fiancé Tane Desatge, 40, was also charged with murder.

The pair are each also charged with interfering with a corpse and torture.

Kaydence was born in September 2014, but had not been seen since 2016.

The charges stemmed from a police investigation that began in November 2019 into what happened to the little girl.

Dawita and Desatge remain in custody and are expected to front the Dalby Magistrates Court later this month for a mention.
