James Paul Turpin appears on second-degree murder charge
A preliminary hearing date has been set for James Paul Turpin, 36, charged with second-degree murder
A report on the RCMP's unsolved homicides and suspicious deaths website said that 11 years ago, Kennedy fell in a bathtub at a residence and bumped her head.
RCMP allege she was in Turpin's care at the time.
June 2, when police arrested Turpin, they alleged new evidence had surfaced. In a statement they said medical evidence in 2004 supported the police theory of a non-accidental death, but was not definitive.
Turpin has not entered a plea.
