Qld mum accused of murder back in court

Robyn Wuth

The mother of a three-year-old girl whose skeletal remains were found in a Queensland dam will return to court in August charged with her murder.

The body of Kaydence Mills was found at the Chinchilla Weir, about 300 kilometres west of Brisbane, in March.

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

Dawita's fiance Tane Desatge, 40, is also charged with murder.

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

Their cases were mentioned in Dalby Magistrates Court on Tuesday, and will return to court on August 11.

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 have not applied for bail.
