Hundreds of witnesses in Keisha trial

HUNDREDS of residents from the Sydney suburb rocked by the death of six-year-old Keisha Abrahams could be called to give evidence in the trial over her murder, a court has heard.

The discovery of Keisha's remains in a shallow grave sparked an outpouring of grief last year in the Mt Druitt community where her mother, Kristi Anne Abrahams, and a co-accused, who cannot be named, were arrested and charged with murder.

On Friday, Ms Abrahams was committed for trial in June next year.

Her co-accused, who entered a guilty plea to manslaughter and accessory after the fact to murder, will be sentenced next month.

The court heard there would be between 48 and "a couple of hundred" witnesses called during the trial, which could take about eight weeks.

Keisha was reported missing on August 1 last year but police will allege she was killed the week before.
