    Australia - Jody Galante, 26, pregnant, shot to death, Bilpin, NSW, 7 Jan 2006

    THE disappearance of pregnant Sydney mother Jody Galante turned from a missing person's inquiry into a murder hunt yesterday.

    And police appear to be closing in on the killer.

    Detectives confirmed yesterday that it was Mrs Galante's badly decomposed body that was found dumped in bushland in the Blue Mountains on Saturday - a week after she vanished.

    Mrs Galante died from gunshot injuries, although police are unsure whether they occurred where she was found - 50m off the Bells Line Of Road, near Bilpin - or elsewhere.

    Detective Superintendent Paul Jones revealed yesterday his investigators knew where to search.

    Looks like everyone is still going through the pretrial process.

    Mark Galante made an emotional televised plea for help finding his "angel", whom he had reported missing to police on January 7.

    Galante maintained his innocence until he was arrested and charged three months after his wife's death. He pleaded guilty to her murder on the eve of his February trial in the NSW Supreme Court.

    Justice Michael Adams today jailed the 29-year-old for a maximum of 27 years years, with a non-parole period of 20 years - the statutory maximum.
