    Women charged with baby's kidnap named

    Nadene Manukau-Togiavalu and Sydnee Toulapapa have been named as the pair charged with kidnapping an 11-day-old baby from an Auckland home in August.

    Two women charged with kidnapping an 11-day-old baby from an Auckland home in August can now be named.

    Nadene Faye Manukau-Togiavalu, 21, and Sydnee Shaunna Toulapapa, 19, lost their bid to prevent their names being published after Justice David Carruthers lifted their name suppression in the Auckland District Court on Tuesday.

    The small baby girl was taken from an Epsom home on August 9 and found after a six-hour police search involving about 80 officers, police said at the time.

    The two women also face burglary charges.

    On Tuesday, the court heard the case had "rather bizarre" alleged offending with Manukau-Togiavalu pretending to be pregnant, and using hired equipment and a baby shower to fool family and friends.

    Manukau-Togiavalu is yet to enter a plea and is being held in custody until her next appearance in October.

    Toulapapa appeared in court supported by family and has been granted bail until her next appearance on December 6.
