COBOURG, Ont. — The mother of a teenage girl found dead in April at a bed and breakfast in Campbellford, Ont., has been charged with manslaughter.
Cindy Lavigne, 46, wept during a court appearance Tuesday.
From the prisoner's box, she told her boyfriend and her father, "I love you guys," before a security officer told her not to communicate.
Sixteen-year-old Tasha Lavigne was found dead on April 24 at the Emilyville Bed and Breakfast, located about 180 km northeast of Toronto.
Police had previously said a post-mortem determined "there was no anatomical cause" in the death.
The teen was staying at the bed and breakfast with her mother.
She is survived by two sisters.
Cindy Lavigne's bail hearing was put over until Wednesday afternoon.
