    Australia - Greg Hosa, 56, & Kathryn McKay, 44, murdered, NSW, 28 Jan 2006

    THE firetrucks arrived at midday yesterday to hose down a small bushfire on the South Coast. After dousing the flames they made their grim find: two bodies were stuffed in barrels and on fire.

    About 10 hours earlier, at 2.30am, a 27-year-old man had given himself up to police; at 8am they interviewed a 36-year-old woman. The pair are expected to be charged with murder.

    So who lit the fire that was burning four hours later? And where are they now?

    Shoalhaven police said when the man came forward he provided information that led them to set up a homicide inquiry. They were looking for a victim or victims before the barrels were found in thick bushland in Tomerong, about a kilometre from Jervis Bay Road.

    Superintendent Kyle Stewart said police were working on the assumption that the bodies had been taken in a vehicle to the place where they were discovered. They had seized a vehicle from bushland.

    He said the two victims were believed to be locals and were likely to have known their killers. Police would not speculate on whether other parties were likely to be involved in the deaths.

    From November 2007:

    http://www.illawarramercury.com.au/s...arrel-murders/

    A Nowra man has been sentenced to 22 years' jail for his role in the "horrendous" murders of a couple whose bodies were found smouldering in barrels in the Tomerong State Forest last year.

    Stacey Lea-Caton, 28, showed no emotion and turned to look at his family in the upper deck of the court room, as he was sentenced in the NSW Supreme Court in Wollongong yesterday.

    Justice Terence Buddin said although Lea-Caton's role in the deaths of Kathryn McKay, 44, and Greg Hosa, 56, owners of a horse stud at Nowra Hill, was subsidiary his involvement had been critical.
    From June 2008:

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2008-06-2...guilty/2480970

    One of three people accused of murdering a couple whose bodies were found burning in barrels in a forest on the New South Wales south coast has been found not guilty of murder...

    During the trial, Flentjar pleaded guilty to kidnapping but continued to plead not guilty to murdering them. Flentjar maintained that he did hold the couple down while they were tied up, but said he played no role in strangling them and putting their bodies in barrels.
    From September 2008:

    Despite her many bizarre explanations, it remains unclear why Kim Leanne Snibson dreamt up a plot to kidnap and murder a married couple from the NSW south coast and dump their bodies in two smouldering 44-gallon barrels...

    Snibson will serve a minimum of 24 years for recruiting two men to help her murder the couple and dump their bodies... She will serve a maximum of 32 years' jail and be eligible for parole in January 2030.
