Charlise Mutten: Mum is pregnant with alleged killer's baby

Charlise Mutten's mother has been revealed to be expecting a baby with the nine-year-old's alleged killer. The shocking revelation comes after the schoolgirl's stepfather Justin Stein, 31, was charged with her murder and denied bail on Wednesday.

Social media posts have revealed she and Stein shared a whirlwind romance, announcing they were in a relationship about a year after Ms Mutten, a former ice addict who has served jail time, walked free from prison.
