A day after Canada's highest court rejected her latest bid to have her conviction overturned, Carol Berner will appeal her sentence at B.C.'s highest court.
The Delta woman who killed four-year-old Alexa Middelaer in May of 2008 was ordered to spend 2.5 years in prison, and banned from driving for five years.
She's been out on bail since filing her first appeal.
The Supreme Court of Canada has already turned down her bid for a new trial, but the BC Court of Appeal must determine if her sentence warrants review.
Berner's car struck Middelaer and her aunt while they were feeding a horse on the side of a rural road.
She later confessed to undercover police, she'd been drinking, but continues to deny she caused the fatal crash.
