The 16-year-old girl, who cannot be named, made a brief first court appearance Monday morning. She lowered her head almost immediately after walking into the court room and didn’t look up to face the judge or gallery.
Roughly two dozen people left the room after her appearance concluded.

The girl is also charged with breaching two conditions of a previous youth sentence. Those stem from a December 2015 guilty plea in a case out of North Battleford.
The girl had pleaded guilty to a number of charges that spanned from January to August 2015, according to court documents. The incidents included setting fire to a home and theft with a weapon in North Battleford.
The girl was also charged with an assault causing bodily harm and assault with a weapon in August of 2015 in Meadow Lake.
She is expected to be back in Saskatoon provincial court Tuesday morning.
