A preliminary hearing has been set for the Lethbridge woman accused of killing her elderly mother.
78-year-old Irene Carter was found dead in her south Lethbridge home in January.
A lengthy search for the suspect ensued, leading to the arrest of her daughter, Lisa Freihaut, in late-April.
The 51-year-old, who faces a charge of second-degree murder, will be back in court for the hearing on January 26th and 27th, with court hearing she’s elected to be tried by judge alone.
Freihaut is out on bail with several conditions, including 24-hour house arrest.
