Talk to her about telling the truth and how important it is. Here are some books on honesty http://astore.amazon.com/wwwcjkidzcom3-20?%5Fencoding=UTF8&node=18 to reinforce your conversation.
If you think she might lie about something...look her in the eye, tell her you are going to ask her a question, but before she answers, you want her to "think about" her answer before she replies.
Let her suffer the natural consequence of her lie (i.e. if she lies about having homework done, and gets a bad grade.....punish her for the bad grade. Calmly say "I'm not sure why you got this bad grade, you said you've been working so hard on your homework")
