AN INDONESIAN maid who tried to harm her employer's twin babies by adding a pinch of detergent into their milk powder was jailed for three years on Thursday.

Titin Agustiana, 24, had earlier pleaded guilty to trying to administer an 'unwholesome thing'' with intent to cause hurt to the 2 1/2-month-old twin sons of her employer on Aug 11.

The court heard that she was unhappy with her employer for scolding her for shoddy work.
