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. An accompanying report says the girl could remain in a coma for weeks while swelling in her brain goes down enough for doctors to determine whether or not she will survive if life-support is turned off.

- 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.
