The mother of slain six-year-old Sydney girl Kiesha Weippeart has pleaded not guilty to her murder.
Kristi Anne Abrahams, 29, from Mt Druitt, sat perched on the edge of a chair in the dock during a brief arraignment in the NSW Supreme Court on Friday.
Dressed in a grey and navy striped jumper, with her dark hair pulled back in a low bun, Ms Abrahams simply said, "Not guilty," when Justice Megan Latham asked her to enter a plea on her murder charge.
Abrahams is due to face trial in June for murdering Kiesha some time between July 11 and August 1, 2010.
The six-year-old was reported missing from her home at Mt Druitt, in western Sydney, on August 1 but the charge wasn't laid until after human remains were discovered in bushland at Mt Druitt eight months later in April 2011.
The discovery happened on what would have been Kiesha's seventh birthday.
Abrahams is due to stand trial in June this year.
