I TOOK MY BABY’S LIFE

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WATCH ON PRESTO -

10PM, ABC2

Part of men­tal health week, this grim film ex­am­ines the dis­turb­ing phe­nom­e­non of par­ents killing their own off­spring. How could Me­lanie Rud­dell kill her two-year-old son Christy af­ter suf­fer­ing from a psy­chotic break­down? We get ac­cess to ex­tracts from Me­lanie’s jour­nal and her fam­ily and friends talk about what led to the death – and the lessons that can be learnt.
