Strbak was released from jail in 2020 after her sentence was reduced following a successful appeal of the nine-year sentence in the High Court.

The mother had spent 1,148 days behind bars.

Tyrell died after Strbak and her then de facto husband, Matthew Scown, failed to seek timely medical treatment for the sick child.

He had been vomiting after a blow to the abdomen, which tore his small intestine.

Strbak pleaded guilty to the involuntary manslaughter charge because he did not seek medical treatment.

A Supreme Court judge ruled that the prosecution had not proven that Strbak was responsible for his son’s injuries.

The top of his Facebook profile reads: ‘You know my name, not my story. You’ve heard what I’ve supposedly done, but not what I’ve been through.

Scown was sentenced to four years behind bars in 2017 for Tyrell’s involuntary manslaughter, but was immediately released as he had served more than two years in custody.

He was convicted of being criminally negligent and failing to seek medical treatment for the child.
