The quest by a Canadian family to get justice for their murdered daughter reaped some reward yesterday.

The family of Rebecca Middleton, murdered more than ten years ago while she was here on holiday, have received a date for a judicial review, which will challenge the prosecution department's decision last year not to review the case. The review has been slated for April 16 and 17.

Lawyer Kelvin Hastings-Smith said the Middleton family is "very hopeful" that the judge hearing the case will side with them, which could pave the way for a fresh trial.

One man, Kirk Mundy, was jailed for being an accessory after the fact to murder while another, Justis Smith, was acquitted due to lack of evidence.
