UNDER Victorian law, infanticide is a crime that can only be committed by women. Legally it involves the death of a child under the age of 2 at the hands of a mother whose mental balance is disturbed because she has failed to fully recover from the birth. It can also apply where the mother is suffering a disorder consequent on her giving birth to that child.
CARDINAL George Pell has sought to subpoena material from Victoria Police, the ABC, Melbourne University Press and journalist Louise Milligan as he prepares to defend historical sexual allegations.

NINE days after his killer was sent to jail , hundreds of people have turned out in memory of teen Pat Cronin in the hope of ending the scourge of coward punch attacks. Pat was killed by a coward punch thrown by Andrew William Lee as he tried to drag mates from a pub brawl in April last year. This afternoon, a foundation set up in his name held its first official event, an 8.6km fundraising walk aimed at raising awareness around coward punch attacks.
No more jail for mum Sofina Nikat who drowned her “possessed” little girl, Sanaya. She then blamed an imaginary barefoot African who smelt of alcohol she said abducted the child. Nikat pleaded guilty to infanticide. More @theheraldsunhttps://t.co/VOlq1WD2QM
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
