1. Melbourne man charged with the death of pregnant woman who fell from moving car.
On Sunday afternoon a 35-year-old man, William Wilson, was charged with causing the death of a pregnant woman by driving dangerously.
Helena Broadbent, 32, fell out of a moving car in Melbourne before she died in hospital after delivering a baby via c-section on Saturday. The baby remains in a critical condition.
Wilson will now await his first court appearance on Wednesday from behind bars. His matter was heard in absentia at the Melbourne Magistrate’s Court on Sunday night, where his lawyers did not apply for bail.
Police allege the pair knew each other; Wilson was having an altercation with Ms Broadbent at a home on Kiwi Retreat in Keilor Downs about 1pm on Saturday.
They believe the argument continued in a car Wilson was driving, with Ms Broadbent falling from the back seat onto the road as the car hit a corner. She was flown to hospital but died after delivering the baby.
Wilson’s lawyer has revealed this is his first time being imprisoned.
According to the ABC, Ms Broadbent’s brother, Paul Broadbent, said: “She was a beautiful, caring mum. She loved those two kids. And she was so looking forward to the new one on the way.”

The two teenagers who shot dead Australian tourist Lucas Fowler, his US girlfriend Chynna Deese and university lecturer Leonard Dyck on a murderous highway rampage in Canada hoped to hijack a boat and sail to Africa or Europe to elude authorities.
The dramatic plan was captured on a video Kam McLeod, 18, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 19, took as Canada’s police and military chased them more than 3,000km across northern Canada.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police has released a report on its investigation, which points to the murders as being random and suggests the teens were seeking “notoriety” for their bloodshed.
