Two children were found dead in a hot car just 10 days after their mum was deemed fit to look after them.
The shocking deaths of two-year-olds Chloe-Ann and Darcey-Helen Conley happened in November 2019.
Mum Kerri-Ann pleaded guilty to two counts of manslaughter this week and, according to local Australian news channel 9News, she had been taking the drug methamphetamine at the time.

One of the children was also seen with a bong in her mouth, and the mum had tried to sell her then-unborn child for an iPhone 7 in June 2018.
But somehow, she had been declared fit to care for the pair less than two weeks before their death.
A report made on her at the time shows that she failed on several occasions to complete mandatory drugs testing, and that one of her children was seen running around her home with a bong before being taken to hospital where doctors found she was “underweight, pale and suffering from diarrhoea”.
It was also found that the mum was selling and using drugs on November 13, 2019, from the family home, but was still declared fit a few days later.
However, just 10 days later the two girls were found dead in the car.
She claimed that she had taken them to a friend's place at 11.30pm one night, and did not want to wake them up so left them in the car.

However, at 4am the next day, she returned and found them dead inside the car which had reached 60c temperatures inside.
This week, she was slammed in jail for nine years, but could be let out on parole within a year.
The girls' father, Peter Jackson slammed the court for the sentence, however.
He said: “I still think it should be murder.
“She should have got the 30 years.
“I don't think it's fair – these were defenceless children.”
