Mum who admitted to killing four-year-old son Tyrrel Cobb WALKS FREE after sentence is reduced

A Gold Coast mother who fought to have her sentence reduced for killing her four-year-old son is set to be released from custody.

Heidi Strbak, 37, was sentenced on Friday to five years in prison after pleading guilty to the manslaughter of Tyrell Cobb.

In 2017, she received a nine-year jail term for the crime, but that sentence was set aside in March after a High Court appeal.

Strbak sobbed as Brisbane Supreme Court Justice David Boddice re-sentenced her after a four-day contested sentence hearing in October.

Justice Boddice immediately suspended the five-year sentence, taking into account the 1148 days Strbak has already spent in custody.
