Bodies-in-barrels killer jailed for 24 years

Kim Leanne Snibson.

The woman who masterminded the kidnapping of a couple whose bodies were found burning in barrels on the NSW south coast has been jailed for at least 24 years.

In the NSW Supreme Court today, Justice Terence Buddin set a maximum term of 32 years for Kim Leanne Snibson.

Snibson, 38, had pleaded guilty to kidnapping and murdering the couple, who ran a horse stud at Nowra, on the NSW south coast.

The bodies of Kathryn McKay, 44, and her husband, Gregory Hosa, 56, were found burning in two metal 44-gallon drums in the Tomerong State Forest, south of Nowra, in January 2006.
