Australian missing infant; her mother convicted of her infanticide.
Two days after giving birth to Tegan, her mother Keli Lane and her partner, rugby league player, Duncan Gillies, attended a friend's wedding and there was no sign of the baby. In 1999, Lane gave birth to another child and, after being refused an abortion in Queensland, she decided to put the child up for adoption. Lane advised a social worker that this was her first child and that Gillies was the father. Gillies denied the claims. The social worker, concerned for the health of the child, placed the baby in temporary foster care.
Keli Lane was an elite water polo player at national and international level. During a police interview, Lane claimed that she had given Tegan to the baby's father, a man called Andrew Morris, with whom she claimed to have had a brief affair. Lane was interviewed by police again in May 2003. This time she claimed the man's name was Andrew Norris; handing over the baby in Auburn Hospital carpark.
On 13 December 2010 a jury found Lane guilty of lying under oath in relation to documents dealing with her adopting out two other babies. The jury found Lane guilty of the murder of Tegan. On 15 April 2011 Lane was sentenced to 18 years' jail with a non-parole period of 13 years and five months.
