Australia's famous 'Dingo Baby' case is to be re-opened for the FOURTH time.

The story began back in 1980 when nine-week-old Azaria Chamberlain was reportedly snatched from her family's tent during a camping trip in the Australian outback.

Her mum, Lindy Chamberlain, maintained her daughter was taken and killed by a dingo, however, she was found guilty in 1982 of her daughter's murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. Her husband Michael was convicted of being an accessory to the murder.

The convictions were overturned when a piece of clothing belonging to Azaria was found by chance near a dingo den, although the little girl's body was never found. Lindy was released but officially the case has never been solved.

The Australian reports that new information regarding dingo attacks has been given to the coroner by Azaria's family.

The new inquest will begin in February, 2012.
