    A US woman has gone on trial accused of using a fictional online personality to bully a 13-year-old girl who later killed herself.
    Lori Drew, 49, allegedly posed as a boy on the MySpace website to befriend Megan Meier, who hanged herself after their virtual relationship ended.
    California prosecutors say she set out to embarrass and humiliate the girl.
    She denies conspiracy and three counts of accessing protected computers without authorisation.
