A Queensland woman jailed for the manslaughter of her little boy says the time she spends behind bars should be cut because she did not inflict the injuries that killed him.

Heidi Strbak pleaded guilty to unlawfully killing her four-year-old son Tyrell Cobb in May 2009, and was sentenced in December nine years’ jail.

She is appealing the length of that sentence on grounds trial judge Justice Peter Applegarth did not properly assess the evidence and that it was incorrect for him to find she caused the fatal blows.
