Chamberlain, who spent three years in jail after one of Australia's most sensational criminal cases, told Woman's Day magazine she met John Hampton Creighton in February and will set up home in the United States later this year.Her 21-year marriage to former Seventh Day Adventist pastor Michael Chamberlain ended in divorce last year. Last month the couple was awarded $1 million following a 1987 pardon and the quashing of convictions against them in September 1988.

Lindy Chamberlain, 44, always maintained her 9-week-old daughter was taken by a dingo - a wild dog - from a camp site near Ayers Rock in August 1980. The baby's body was never found.
