He thanked both legal teams before allowing Ms Matthey to leave the dock.

She has lost her four children and then to be charged with the murder of them is, I think, unprecedented, certainly in this State, and her loss and sadness is both profound and ongoing. Previously, coroners had found two of the children died from cot death,

The heartbroken father of a 2-year-old boy whose body was found in a suitcase has made an emotional trip to the scene of the crime. kThe former dancer making the journey after being released from jail. liveSOFTELA week after his tiny body was discovered in a suitcase, Dean Shillingsworth's father, Paul,

finally made a pilgrimage to the spot where his son was found. Supported by his extended family,

Paul Shillingsworth had made the 5-hour-long journey from Junee, where he was released from prison this morning. It was an emotional visit for the grieving father, who had raised Dean for the first year of his life. Family members took Paul in their arms to help console his grief. I just lost my son which I'm never going to see again.

He was shown the flowers and tributes left by members of the local community, who have felt the loss of the 2-year-old almost as sharply as his own family. While his father will now be at the grave side, Dean's mother, who is accused of his murder, is unlikely to attend the funeral, which will be held next week in Brewarrina. Preparations are well under way for a community memorial service,

which will be held at the Ambarvale duck pond on Friday afternoon. The Anglican minister officiating says it will help bring the community together. this tragic event, it is not the time to panic about our community. And like the local community, the Shillingsworth clan say they'll never forget little Dean. John Hill, Ten News.

An ordeal deep underground for 54 miners. A truck engine caught alight, sending them scrambling for their emergency shelters.

The incident happened in the Kanowna Belle Gold Mine near Kalgoorlie The fire was put out quickly but the workers were told to seek refuge in safety stations until it was safe to bring them back to the surface. All miners are due back tonight. California's deadly bushfires have claimed more lives. At least five people have now been killed by the flames burning out of control across the state. 500,000 people have been forced to flee their homes.

Late News Reporter Nicole Strahan has been with some of them taking shelter near San Diego.

I told you to get out! You need to get out now!

The fury of the deadly flames is proving just too great, home after home crumbling, whole streets left in ruins, lives thrown into disarray. The number of homes and businesses destroyed stands at over 1,400 and it's rising by the hour.

It's very scary (whimpers). After more than three days fire crews still haven't been able to stop the spread of what they're calling the beast, with several of the dozen blazes burning across Southern California joining up. The persistent strong and hot Santa Ana winds have made fighting the flames from the air

The huge plumes of smoke Back on earth, the President plans to visit the devastated areas. with those who've been affected and we send the help of the federal government as well. Over 500,000 people have fled the raging fires,

the largest evacuation this country has seen since Hurricane Katrina. At the football stadium,

as many as 15,000 people are waiting out the firestorm. This is just like Hurricane Katrina only more organised. The response from people around San Diego who are not affected by the fires has been quite extraordinary. There's a continual stream of people coming in here to the stadium with food, clothes and toiletries, just trying to help those less fortunate in any way they can. In San Diego, Nicole Strahan for Ten News. It took two of Australia's most celebrated actors and an Indian director to bring the story of one of England's greatest Queens to the screen. But British fans don't mind. They've given 'Elizabeth - The Golden Age' the royal thumbs-p.

Stepping onto the red carpet and onto Oscar's radar... ..but Cate Blanchett, sparkling in a sequined blue gown, has worked hard for the praise. FILM CLIP: Majesty, we have every proven reason Fear creates fear. She struggled to reprise Queen Elizabeth, a challenging role that launched her career almost a decade ago. Can I ask, was it any easier playing Elizabeth the second time around? Well, the first time I played it and I made the film with Gill Armstong and Bruce Beresford, and no-one knew me internationally so I had nothing to lose. Fellow Aussie actor winner Geoffrey Rush didn't think twice about signing up for the sequel where Elizabeth leads her country into holy war and her heart into trouble. I felt like I was in 'The Godfather: Part II', 'Part III'.

Is it true you convinced Cate to come back to the role? That story is a little blown out of proportion but, you know, if you look at Cate's career over the last 10 years, she takes on very daring, very self-challenging very unpredictable kinds of roles. Delighting fans worldwide and directors too. There's something about Australians that we Indians have also - we want to reach out.

We don't believe we live in the centre of the universe. The film's received mixed reviews an inferior follow-up. with some US critics calling it On there other hand, there are those already talking Oscars. 'Elizabeth: The Golden Age' opens in Australia next month. I fear neither him, nor his priest, nor his armies. In London, Danielle Isdale, Ten News. A mega cruise ship has done the limbo on Sydney Harbour. The 'Sun Princess' super-liner is the largest ship to squeeze under the Harbour Bridge.

amid court action and the docking of nurses' pay.

Nurses remain defiant in their campaign for better pay

and an improvement in the ratio of nurses to patients. As they rallied outside the Monash Medical Centre hospital negotiators went to the federal court to enforce an order banning the 1,200 bed closures so far. It's an attempt by the State Government to get us to back down.

We will not back down. The court could issue heavy fines to the union and individual nurses. New hope for thousands of Australians living in silence.

which was a cable going up to a headset.

Now we have a small processor which is behind the ear. Today almost 5,000 Australians have a cochlear implant and it's estimated a further 15,000 people with severe hearing problems could benefit from the technology. In the future I imagine that there will be no external processor, all the functions will be inside the head, every day. you could wear it all day, I can hear now! (Laughs).

A warning today for Sri lankan spinning great Muttiah Muralitharan. The Australian cricket team will be doing all it can to stop him claiming Shane Warne's world Test wicket record in this country, this summer. Even with 700 Test wickets to his name, Australia remains a final frontier for Muttiah Muralitharan, It's probably one of the places where he has to prove he's one of the top bowlers in the world. His last Test series here was in 1995-96, when he was infamously no-balled at the MCG. Ever since, Australian crowds have taunted him over his bowling action. There might be a few "No ball" chants come his way, but, look, he'll cope with it. It's probably happened to him a number of times in his career now. He's an unbelievable bowler, with an unbelievable record. There's always idiots in every crowd, I don't know if you're ever going to stop that 100%. The Australians making it clear

they don't want Muralitharan to leave the country with the nine scalps he needs to break Warne's record. to that amount of wickets, If we keep him we should be going pretty well in the series. That's the important thing. I'm not saying it as a personal thing against Murali. I just know that's the focus we'll have to get going into the series as a batting group. The make-up of that batting group in the first Test at the Gabba is another question. The player who created the opener's vacancy, on a hiding to nothing. If I say Phil Jaques, I'm not loyal to Chris Rogers. If I say Chris Rogers, they'll say I'm biased towards my WA team-mates. If I say Brad Hodge - who I think is too good a player not to be playing Test cricket - because he has never opened before. Langer believes Jaques has the inside running, but Hodge may open for Victoria this weekend in a bid to press his claims. I guess the opening spot has come about in the last six months and, look, I'll be trying my best to get my hands on it. Whoever ends up taking the job if it's Hussey, if it's Jaques, if it's Watson, if it's Hodge - any of those guys, I'm pretty sure, is going to do a pretty good job. I think it's still up for grabs to be honest, I don't think you can come out and say it's set in stone, this is your team, at this stage. Leanne West for Sports Tonight.
