The murder trial of a woman accused of killing her 5-year-old daughter six years ago is scheduled to be heard in San Fernando Superior Court on Jan. 24.

Debby Saravia, 32, of San Fernando, appeared briefly in court Tuesday morning and was ordered to return to court in two weeks.

She is charged with murder, torture, two counts of child abuse and two counts of corporal injury to a child.

Her daughter Desarie Elizabeth Saravia was pronounced dead Nov. 12, 2004, at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, exhibiting head-to-toe injuries consistent with having been battered, burned and whipped.

A jury convicted Saravia’s boyfriend, Antonio Rodriguez, of murder, torture and six other related crimes in July. He was sentenced to death in two months later.
