Kellie Johnson charged in death of Jonathan Vetter, 5
Saskatoon boy pronounced dead at a home in the 400 block of Avenue R South
Kellie Johnson, 35, made her first court appearance this morning. She's accused of killing five-year-old Jonathan Vetter.
She'll stay in custody until she returns to court tomorrow.
Police are not saying how the boy died.
Kellie Johnson was arrested Saturday and charged that same night with first degree murder.
Johnson is known to the authorities.
Last January, she was the subject of a missing person report after she left a mental health facility at the university. Family and friends were concerned about her welfare due to a history with mental illness, said the police report at the time.
Johnson also missed two court appearances in Saskatoon last year. She's also charged with threatening a man from Harris, west of Saskatoon.
