A champion water polo player who murdered her infant daughter could be released from prison within months – as details emerge of her new job and living conditions.
Sydney woman Keli Lane, 48, was jailed for 18 years in 2010 after a court found her guilty of murdering her daughter Tegan two days after giving birth in 1996.
Tegan’s body had never been found.
Now Lane could be freed as soon as May of next year, when she’s eligible for parole.
It’s been revealed that Lane has been living in a halfway house in western Sydney and has a full-time job processing cartons of milk for the state’s prison population.

Recent footage has emerged of the baby killer leaving her full-time job – the first time she’s been seen in years.
She is dressed in all black and carrying a backpack in the clip.
Lane has been serving out her sentence in various prisons including Silverwater Women’s Correctional Centre, Dillwynia Women’s Correctional Centre and Clarence Correctional Centre in Grafton.
She’s been deemed a ‘model prisoner’ and has been helping improve the health of other prisoners through diet and exercise.
‘Keli Lane has really been a model prisoner since she has been incarcerated,’ forensic anthropologist and criminologist Dr Xanthe Mallett told 9News.
‘She’s spent time working with other inmates on diet and exercise and really improving their lives.’
Lane has always claimed that she never murdered her daughter, which is a position Dr Mallett says she will maintain upon her release.
‘Kelly will certainly still want to clear her name. She will want to maintain her innocence upon her release,’ she said.
