Steven Wallace – Baby Bashing – Mark Todd – Overstayers – All Blacks – Inside Political Headlines – Editorial: Mark Todd

STEVEN WALLACE: The Dominion leads today with a report that the constable who shot and killed Waitara man Steven Wallace could potentially face charges in court, Police Commissioner Rob Robinson says.

BABY BASHING: The front-page photo shows a picture of the Whangarei Toddler in Starship Hospital in happier times.

- MARK TODD: Champion eventer Mark Todd says he is aware of the political furore over his Olympic bid, but plans to ride anyway;

- OVERSTAYERS: a report that Trevor Mallard has apologised for a mailout to Pacific Islanders warning about overstaying;

- ALL BLACKS: a photo of a group of toddlers who turned up to All Black training in Palmerston North yesterday.

- Health bill “heralds change for better”;
