MEDICINE HAT, Alta. — Nobody in the courtroom had a bad thing to say of progress made by a young woman who murdered her family as a child, but she won't be allowed to roam free at night.

Convicted for the first-degree murders of her parents and younger brother in Medicine Hat at 12 years old, the young woman on Monday was denied a request to lift an 11:30 p.m. curfew during an annual review of her case.

Defence lawyer Tim Foster called his client — now just shy of 20 and living independently, working and attending school — a "poster child" for re-integration programs.
