Two young women have learnt their fate after they kidnapped their friend, stabbed her and threw her into the boot of her own car with a plan to dump her body at Belanglo State Forest.
While 24-year-old Nisha Phillips lay bleeding in the boot of her own Holden Commodore on the Hume Highway at Berrima, then pregnant teen Latia Henderson and Kayley Lee Ketley were smoking cannabis and filming Snapchat videos singing to music.
The case rocked the small town on Sydney’s outskirts, with Henderson, then 18, and Ketley, then 24, torturing the victim for more than 12 hours before a dramatic police intervention.
Earlier this year both women pleaded guilty as the details which led to the moment Ms Phillips was rescued were revealed.

The pair faced Campbelltown District Court on Wednesday, Ketley in the dock and Henderson via AVL, dressed in their prison greens as Judge Jennifer English sentenced the women for the offending.
The pair faced the same court less than a week ago when Henderson walked through the front door for the last time before her bail was revoked and she was sent to prison.
Henderson, who gave birth to her son in August last year, pleaded guilty to a charge of take and drive conveyance and take/detain in company with the intent to commit serious indictable offence occasioning actual bodily harm.
The 20-year-old also pleaded guilty to a related charge of driving without a licence.
Ketley, 26, pleaded guilty to two charges of take and drive conveyance without consent of the owner, kidnap in company with serious indictable occasion, reckless wounding, cause grievous bodily harm to person with intent and a backup charge of possessing a prohibited drug and had six charges withdrawn.

Judge English told the court ahead of the sentence a fight occurred outside the court on the last occasion, leading to a restriction on the number of supporters allowed inside the court.
She said there had also been an issue between Ketley and Henderson after the 20-year-old was taken into custody last week.
‘Whatever concerned downstairs which I am not privy to…Henderson will be appearing via AVL,’ Judge English said.
Judge English sentenced Henderson to an aggregate sentence of seven years and six months with a non parole period of five years. She will be eligible for parole on May 16, 2027.
Ketley was sentenced to an aggregate sentence for 11 years with a non parole period of six years and seven months. She will be eligible for parole on September 2, 2027.
‘But look at the f**king traffic bro for 28kms down the highway … f**king bullsh*t and I’ve got this dumb sh*t up my ass and she’s a f**king dead set mutt,’ Henderson said in the video
The court was previously shown videos of the pair singing along to music as Ms Phillips used a makeshift tourniquet to stop herself from bleeding out in the back of the car.
Videos show Henderson driving the car south towards the Belanglo State Forest while the pair sing along to Chris Brown and Post Malone songs.
In another snippet, Henderson blows smoke to the camera.
‘But look at the f**king traffic bro for 28kms down the highway … f**king bullsh*t and I’ve got this dumb sh*t up my ass and she’s a f**king dead set mutt,’ Henderson said in the video.
During the sentence hearing, Henderson tearfully told the court she was ‘absolutely disgusted in’ herself.
‘I’m extremely remorseful for the victim, she didn’t deserve that,’ she said.

She told the court she grew up in a ‘domestically violent home’, leading her to start using ice at the age of 16.
‘I used to just leave home and get drunk. I’d go into the city and I would just take my anger out on anybody,’ she said through tears.
She conceded to still having an issue with drugs but said she wanted to turn her life around.
‘I want to be a better person and I want a good life for my son, I want to change,’ she said.
The 20-year-old sobbed in court as she watched the Snapchat videos.
