The deal is expected to be completed by October. More tales of bizarre behaviour by the man at the centre of an inquiry into a suspected murder -

Desmond Campbell sent joke emails to a former lover within weeks of his wife's death. Dr Jennifer Dunlop emerges from court trying to cover up what was left of her dignity. She'd just spent two hours explaining how she was duped by the man at the centre of the inquest. What is your feeling towards Desmond today? I have no comment to make. lovers after meeting on the Internet. She says she fell for him after he assured her he was a faithful man and besieged her with emails and cards.

He told her all about his life, including his love of camping, but said nothing about having a wife or that she'd died in a mysterious cliff accident.

The first the doctor knew of it was when police approached her for a statement. She told the court

Campbell never explained why he'd lied to her or why the police suspected his involvement and she was too hurt to ask. She says he seemed unemotional about his wife's death sending joke emails. and quickly resumed Campbell's apparent disregard for women is a topic Janet Campbell's family has become all too familiar with. So far, four former lovers have given evidence.

The next one, Susan Jackson, recalled how Campbell had thrown her out of his car on numerous occasions. He also once asked her to wait for him while he resolved yet another relationship with a divorcee.

Are you relieved you never accepted his proposal? Of course. The wait for Campbell's side of the story is almost over. He's due to give evidence later this week. Also subpoenaed are his parents and current wife, who have all stood by him despite knowing he's the only person of interest. The inquest resumes tomorrow. Amber Muir, Ten News. From today, smoking is banned in all indoor public venues. But the Cancer Council says the law doesn't go far enough, insisting the ban should include outdoor areas of pubs and clubs. Smoke-free zones in all public indoor areas -

of almost three years it's the culmination of the State Government's gradual phasing-out of smoking in hotels, clubs and nightclubs, protecting workers and patrons from passive smoking.

Yeah, I hate it when they smoke. It annoys me - it smells. Not surprisingly, smokers are fuming.

It's not really fair for smokers. I think that's crap, because when I drink, I like to smoke. That's the only time I really smoke is when I drink.

of social smokers - And it's that group 4% of the population - that's expected to quit because of the smoking ban. It's hoped daily smokers will decrease from 13% to less than 10%, furthering lowering cases of smoking-related diseases like lung cancer. There's no doubt the new law has already encouraged smokers to butt their habit. Leading up to this week, the Quit Help Line has recorded three times more calls than usual.

But the Cancer Council wants the smoking ban to spread to public outdoor areas. It's not good enough.

We really want to see genuinely smoke-free pubs and clubs

and we know that there are enormous benefits

to introducing smoke-free laws in places like pubs and clubs. To attract non-smokers, some bars have gone to costly lengths to refurbish, while courtyards and beer gardens have been upgraded for smokers. We think it will bring people back to the pubs, bring families into community hotels. We think, based on experience overseas, that the clientele will go up. Catherine Kennedy, Ten News.

This program is captioned live. Three generations of a gypsy family have been found guilty over a brutal murder on the Central Coast. Romany gypsy William Smith died

in a caravan park in 2005

after being attacked with axes, machetes and a samurai sword.

The killing was carried out by members of the Jones family, who were also gypsies. Adam Jones and his son both pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

His parents have today been found guilty of the same offence, and his wife guilty of being an accessory after the fact.

They'll all be sentenced later this month. A Qantas flight attendant has admitted importing 134 grams of cocaine into Australia in her bra. Despite the admission, Sue-Ellen Cryer is defending the charge, saying she's a cocaine addict and the drugs were for her own use. Lawyers for 54-year-old Sue-Ellen Cryer have told her trial the former Qantas flight attendant has been using cocaine for so long

it's damaged her septum, the membrane which divides the nostrils.

Customs officers stopped Cryer in March 2006 after she arrived in Sydney from Los Angeles via Auckland.

An ion track wand detected traces of cocaine on her purse, mobile phone and luggage. She was searched and found to be carrying two packs of cocaine hidden in the cups of her bra. Accused of illegally importing 136g of the drug,

Cryer told the court: and allegedly found traces of cocaine, small plastic bags and glucodin, used to cut the drug for sale. The court was told that at her home police found

a photograph of Cryer with a straw to her nose,

appearing to inhale a line of white powder.

The Crown claims Cryer imported the cocaine partly for her own use but also intended selling a quantity of the drug. But her lawyers deny that, saying she's been fighting an addiction to cocaine, which she's continued using even since her arrest. John Hill, Ten News. An emotional goodbye for a Sydney businessman murdered in his Castle Hill home. 36-year-old Richard Carruthers was farewelled by more than 200 people

Police are still hunting the killer. Claims of secret recordings and dirty tricks

with another union leader caught bragging he would take on Kevin Rudd. But the unions have returned fire, accusing the Prime Minister of spying on voters. Campaigning in John Howard's seat of Bennelong is already at fever pitch. The Prime Minister was back there today kissing babies. But last Tuesday night he declined to attend a Rights at Work meeting at the nearby leagues club. He sent a letter instead, defending WorkChoices -

Some at the meeting One lady said her AWA robbed her of a pay rise. They were very nervous and they feared for their jobs, so you can imagine my concern. Of more immediate interest to the Government - this outburst from union boss John Robertson. The bottom line here is that people swagger a bit and say a few things like that. For me, it doesn't add up to a row of beans. But John Howard says Mr Robertson was instrumental in getting Kevin Rudd the top Labor job. Mr Rudd owes him big-time

I've grown up as somewhat I had the regular children's stories from America but I also had 'Blinky Bill' and 'Dot and the Kangaroo'. Brisbane-born Iris met and married James Robert Craig, an American GI, in 1943. Three years later, when her husband was offered a job back in California, Iris followed. It meant sacrificing her Australian citizenship to settle permanently in the US,

a sacrifice about 15,000 Aussie women made for love.

From July 1, war brides are entitled to claim back their Australian citizenship. It'll make me feel whole again. Her 62-year-old daughter, however, has never been sure about which country she could call home, until now.

And if it's not tough enough for the poor old Blues already, now they've been accused of turning on their coach?

It has been like a classic case of

who don't eat up here. In a Sydney

newspaper yesterday an unnamed NSW

a player was quoted as saying that

senior Blues had lost consonant

with their coach. And William Mason

denied that he is the right in the ranks. Willie Mason blissfully unaware of the storm he was walking into. There was a bit in the paper yesterday having a crack at Muzz, about the senior players but everyone is right behind him. You can't blame the coach for us losing the series. Mason calling the story "a load of crap". The Blues giant really starting to boil when told he was under suspicion as the anonymous player who dumped on his coach.

I didn't even know that. That's a bit of a shock, actually. I didn't really know that, but I get along with Muzz great. I don't know who's pointing the finger at me, but they probably haven't got the balls to say it to my face anyway. To save the finger-pointing, some Blues believe the aggrieved player should come forward. If someone's unhappy with what's gone on or are trying to say Muzz is the wrong guy,

then maybe he should have put his name to the story. The coach staying positive amid the sniping. The camp is good, there's a good feeling about them. They've trained as good as any time, if not better, this week, so I can't see any indication happening behind the scenes. Newly named 18th man Ben Creagh managing to escape all the fuss when he arrived in Brisbane later in the day. The Maroons a stark contrast to the embattled Blues, relaxing on the Gold Coast.

It will also be Larkham's 100th cap. It's a very proud milestone for myself, but to have George alongside me is gonna make it doubly special. Yeah, it's a great occasion. You don't often get guys 130 plus and another guy playing his 100th Test. And the contribution they've made to Australian rugby is phenomenal. He suffered nerve damage in his shoulder
