A Malaysian woman who tried to blackmail the parents of a dying baby to make some money quickly could soon be deported.
Jay and Dee Windross & 11-month-old daughter Amiyah died in April, days after a mobile phone with irreplaceable family photos was stolen from a shopping mall in Melbourne.
Siti Nurhidayah Kamal, 24, pleaded guilty in blackmailing the couple in the hours before and after the death of little Amiyah due to an undiagnosed neurological disorder.
She appeared in the County Court of Victoria on Thursday for a pre-trial hearing, where she was told she would face prison and probably be deported, 7News reported.
Baby Amiyah died tragically after she succumbed to an undiagnosed neurological issue she had been fighting for since her birth.

Kamal had contacted Jay and Dee Windross after they had made a desperate plea for the return of the Samsung Galaxy S8 phone.
& # 39; It's despicable. It's disgusting, & Mrs. Windross said at the time.
& # 39; Why would anyone do that and she knew the position we were in? You could tell by the messages. How can you be so disgraceful? & # 39;
Kamal had contacted the couple via whatsapp after posting various desperate messages on social media to help them pick up the phone.
The couple believes the phone was stolen in April from the toilets next to Target in the Chadstone shopping center.
& # 39; The hours we held our daughter, this woman was in her own house and demanded money from us, & # 39; Mrs. Windross said out of court.

The Ringwood Magistrates & # 39; Court in April heard Kamal and her husband had worked as Uber Eats deliverers who earned $ 120 a day.
Her lawyer, Royce Dekker, said the couple had left their children in Malaysia and tried to make ends meet when they were struggling and unable to pay the rent.
& # 39; They earn more money than we do, & # 39; said Mrs. Windross.
& # 39; They earn more money than we have lived for 11 months each of one wage and we have had to pay hospital bills, parking – everything. Mortgage accounts. And she cries there because they don't earn enough money. & # 39;
Kamal had contacted the couple as they spent their last precious moments with her.
Windross said she texted him all night while he & # 39; every emotional minute & # 39; had tried to spend with his child.

& # 39; It was a hoax. It was not only a complete and complete waste of my time, it interrupted my last moments with my dying daughter, "he wrote on Facebook.
Outside the court, the couple again insisted that everyone who had the phone should contact them.
& # 39; I no longer have my baby, I can no longer take photos of my baby. I don't care who you are, & Mrs. Windross said.
& # 39; Give it back … you don't have to tell me who you are or where you are. Just put the phone down somewhere and let someone know where it is so I can have it back. & # 39;
Mrs Windross's phone has not yet been returned to her.
