A woman accused of killing a gold prospector in the Queensland countryside has spoken about the crime compared to the horror movie Wolf Creek.
Dianne Wilson-Struber and her husband Stephen Struber were both imprisoned in 2015 after being found guilty of the murder of a father of two, Bruce Schuler after being missing in July 2012 at the Palmerville station in North Queensland .
Wilson-Struber, undergoing her sentence in the Townsville Correctional Center women's prison, denies that she was involved in the murder.
In the book & # 39; Murder on the River of Gold & # 39; by Robert Reid, Wilson-Struber broke her silence about the crime she insisted she had not committed, hoping that this would lead to a new investigation of the case.

& # 39; We didn't kill anyone. We were not there. We didn't do it, & Wilson said Struber to Reid as reported by the Courier mail.
Schuler was 48 when he was shot while looking for gold at the couple's home, but his body was never found.
Wilson-Struber claimed that the disappearance was related to a feud on drugs with other miners.
Schuler & # 39; s widow Fiona Splitt inspired the No Body, No Parole rule, meaning that if Wilson-Struber does not tell the police where the body is, she will remain in prison until she dies.
Prosecutors said the couple showed no remorse during the trial and denied any involvement, as reported by the ABC.

& # 39; Yes, I am angry, very angry, but I am not showing it. There is no point. But if they want me to say that I killed him, I refuse because I didn't, & said Wilson-Struber.
& # 39; Don't you think I'd show them where it is (body) if I knew? & # 39;
There were no murder weapons or eyewitnesses, but fellow prospectors Dan Bidner and Tremaine Anderson said they saw the couple pop up in an ute in the area they were exploring before they heard two firearms.
The only trace left was a small piece of blood confirmed in DNA tests to belong to Schuler.
The prospectors were on the farm without permission and Struber had told one of them to get away from his home a week before Schuler's disappearance.
The police found blood, burnt grass and markings of tires that match the car of the couple at 2 km from the house.
Principal investigator Detective Sergeant Brad McLeish said he believed Wilson-Struber shot the first photo, but could not conclude who had shot the second.
& # 39; There is no doubt that they have laid the body on the back of the ute and have lit the fire to get rid of traces of blood. Who took the second photo? We don't know, & McLeish said.

He believed that both Struber and his wife fired the shots because they were often seen with guns.
McLeish described the couple as & # 39; cold and emotionless & # 39; and Struber had a history of domestic violence against his wife.
He said that Schuler's corpse could have been dumped in a cave or mine shaft for five or ten hours.
He also told Mr. Reid that Struber and his wife could have killed earlier and that more than one body could be exposed.
Mrs. Splitt said she would face her husband's murderer if she could confess her.
During the trial, she read a victim's bulletin saying that her world was destroyed after her husband's death.
& # 39; Why did you hurt him? Where is he? How can I ever prevent this nightmare from tearing my heart and mind apart? & # 39; Mrs. Splitt said.
& # 39; I will not rest until we have found Bruce and brought him home.
& # 39; Until we bring him home, our family will really have no closure. & # 39;
