CALGARY - The Crown says a little girl was confined and tortured for several days in a Calgary home before she fell unconscious and later died.

The first-degree murder trial began today for the father and stepmother of six-year-old Meika Jordan, who died of blunt force trauma in 2011.

The Crown says a lighter was used to burn the girl on her hand.

Spencer Jordan and Marie Magoon have both pleaded not guilty.

The pair say the child was injured after she fell down stairs.

A group of bikers wore T-shirts with a photo of Meika as they marched with her mother from City Hall to the courthouse.

A spokesperson for the group says members plan to be at court every day of the trial to stand with the family.
