Heather Mack, 23, and her boyfriend Tommy Schaeffer were convicted of killing Sheila von Wiese-Mack in 2014.
Mack was sentenced to 10 years in prison. She tells Daily Mail TV that she could be a free woman in 18 months for good behavior.
Mack says if she gets deported back to the U.S., she'll return to Bali with her 4-year-old daughter, Stella, because she never wants to return to Chicago or the U.S.
Mack says Bali is much safer for both of them.
