BRIDGEWATER — A Nova Scotia woman accused of impaired driving in the death of her young daughter has chosen to be tried by judge and jury.

A lawyer representing Candice Roxanne Moore appeared on her client’s behalf today in Bridgewater provincial court.

The 31-year-old Moore is also charged with criminal negligence causing death, dangerous driving causing death and refusing to comply with the demand for a breath sample.

She has not yet entered any pleas.

Moore was charged after her nine-year-old daughter, Olive, was struck and killed by a van Jan. 19 in Pleasantville, N.S.

The case is due back in court for a preliminary inquiry on Nov. 29.
