A mother has admitted smothering her 15-month-old daughter and throwing her body in a Melbourne creek.

Sofina Nikat, 24, on Friday pleaded guilty to infanticide over the death of Sanaya Sahib in 2016, but was released on bail.

"She then rolled her body into the creek."

The Fijian-born woman was originally charged with murder but prosecutors earlier in September accepted Nikat had...

A young man accused of shooting two teenagers in the legs as part of an inter-family feud visited the pair in hospital and offered them money to stay quiet, a Melbourne court has been told.

Zakaria Zaatiti, 23, is charged with intentionally causing serious injury to Suhayl Omran and Ayoub Omran on August 11 at Roxburgh Park as part of an ongoing feud between the "young male members" of both families.

The two teenagers, aged 16 and 18, were shot in the legs with five bullets.

Melbourne Magistrates Court was told on Thursday that police retraced Zaatiti's movements using the GPS on his phone, which places him at the scene of the crime in the early hours of August 11.

The court heard that on the day before the shooting, Zaatiti met a "known gun trafficker" and later went to his cousin Omar's house.

Police allege Suhayl Omran said he knew who shot him, but didn't want to say in case it...

Ella Crofts has started a petition calling for more funding to research Mycobacterium Ulcerans.

A flesh-eating disease common in third world countries is infecting parts of Victoria at increasingly epidemic rates and doctors have no idea why.

Mycobacterium Ulcerans, an infection which eats away at the limbs like gangrene, has more than doubled in Victoria in the last year with 240 new cases. In the past few months nine people have been diagnosed with it each week.

The disease, also known as the Bairnsdale Ulcer, is strangely migrating from the Bellarine peninsula to the Mornington peninsula, which has become a hot-spot for the disease.

WARNING: Graphic images below.

Ella Crofts, an active and healthy 13-year-old from Tyabb, was struck down with Mycobacterium Ulcerans in April and is still trying to recover from the disease that turned her knee into a festering sore the size of her...

4144397 vic-man-ran-for-his-life-but-was-shot-dead-news-com-au

A young Melbourne man tipped over a wheelie bin in a desperate bid to escape two attackers who chased him down and shot him dead metres from his family home.

Victoria Police on Wednesday released footage of Anwar Teriaki running for his life before he was fatally shot just after midnight on August 9 in Roxburgh Park.

Investigators believe the gunman lay in wait for up to 40 minutes inside a silver sedan until Mr Teriaki returned home.

The 21-year-old was then confronted by his killers when he got out of his car.

The CCTV shows him running along Coronet Ave with two men in hot pursuit, while a silver sedan follows.

Police say the footage shows "a man running for his life and a pursuit to his death".

He tipped over a wheelie bin at one point, causing one of the chasing men to fumble the weapon he was carrying.
