Carol Berner has lost her bid to ask the country's highest court to overturn her conviction in the death of a four-year-old girl.
The Supreme Court of Canada has dismissed Berner's request to have her case heard in Ottawa.
She had filed for leave to appeal last month, after a lower court upheld her conviction last fall.
Her lawyers argue police had mishandled her file, and that new evidence has surfaced in a related civil matter.
Berner was found guilty of impaired driving causing Alexa Middelaer's death on a Delta road in 2008.
She was sentenced to two and a half years in prison.
She's appealing that too – at the B.C. Court of Appeal in Vancouver tomorrow.
