A Canterbury, N.B., woman was found guilty Thursday of criminal negligence causing the death of her two-year-old daughter.
Anna-Marie Mooers, 27, was charged along with her then boyfriend, Curtis Hathaway, after failing to recognize Juli-Anna was in need of medical attention in April 2004.
The toddler died of a perforated bowel. An autopsy found that a plastic pencil-shaped toy, nine centimetres long and one centimetre in diameter, had been inside the child for two or three days and had caused the perforation.
