A Surrey, B.C., woman accused of killing her eight-year-old daughter has been found fit to stand trial.

Lisa Batstone appeared in provincial court on Monday, where the results of a psychiatric assessment were released.

She is facing a second-degree murder charge in the death of Teagan Batstone, whose body was found in the trunk of a car in early December.

On her way out of the courtroom, Batstone waved and blew kisses to her family and then covered her mouth and cried.

Her lawyer says Batstone is severely depressed and will remain in a psychiatric hospital.

Police have said they were responding to a suspicious circumstance when the little girl's body was discovered in south Surrey.
