Robert Leeming broke down, sobbing, several times when he took the stand at his trial on a second-degree murder charge in the death of Aliyah Sanderson in 2019.

He has already entered a guilty plea in the second-degree murder of the girl’s mother, Jasmine Lovett.

Leeming testified that he loved Aliyah and that she was a great kid.

He also denied having any reason to kill her.

Leeming said he heard a thud after he saw Aliyah start to climb a set of stairs, but he picked her up and she seemed fine.

The bodies of the girl and her mother were found buried in a shallow grave in a remote area west of Calgary.
