SINS OF THE MOTHER

The Australian Women's Weekly - - In Brief -

A MOTHER JAILED over the deaths of her four chil­dren will have her case re-ex­am­ined by the NSW gov­ern­ment, fol­low­ing a long-run­ning cam­paign by sup­port­ers who be­lieve she is in­no­cent. Kath­leen Fol­bigg (in the brown shirt, above right) was jailed for a min­i­mum of 25 years after be­ing found guilty of three counts of mur­der and one of man­slaugh­ter in 2005. An­other con­victed baby killer, Keli Lane (above, left), has taken her cause to the me­dia. Keli wrote to in­ves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ist Caro Mel­drum-Hanna from prison say­ing she was wrong­fully jailed. “It’s cru­cial the pub­lic hear and see the er­rors po­lice made,” she wrote. “I need to prove I did not harm her.” Caro’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the case will run on the ABC as a three-part se­ries start­ing on Septem­ber 25.
