SPOKANE, Wash. — A Post Falls man has been sentenced to 28 years in prison for his role in the 2015 kidnapping and murder of Bret Snow.
In June, a jury found Colby Vodder guilty of first-degree murder and second-degree kidnapping.
Four year's later and Snow's family still grieves the loss of their loved one.
"What amazes us and her is not one of you shed a tear or seemed remorseful for what you've done," said Katherine Lowry.
In court, Snow's aunt, Katherine Lowry gave a victim statement to the court.
Her nephew's body still has not been found. She repeatedly asked Vodder to tell the family where their loved one is.
"Please turn to Lori and let her know where her son Bret is," she said.
Previously released court documents alleged Snow was killed and dismembered during a drug deal.
Snow, 33, was last seen in Spokane Valley on Dec. 3, 2015. Through an investigation, detectives developed probable cause for a search warrant for 26-year-old Colby D. Vodder’s home in Post Falls in Dec. 2016.
Vodder was convicted this year during a second trial, because the jury couldn't come to a decision during the first trial. His defense attorney, Joe Kuhlman said he believes the evidence should allow Vodder to have a lesser sentence.
"Based upon these factual differences, I believe the family of Mr. Snow is correct especially in their allocatiution to this court, Mr. Vodder's case was different than the others and we ask the court to recognize that and sentence him on the low end," Kuhlman said.
Judge Raymond Clary disagreed calling Vodder's actions "evil" and he deserves the highest punishment.
"You and the others have not only taken Lori's son, Colby, but the chance of ever seeing him getting married, having children or even seeing his children," Lowry said.
There are four suspects total in the homicide investigation, Cheryl Sutton, and Alvaro Guajardo.
Cheryl L. Sutton was found guilty of first-degree murder in the Snow homicide investigation in March and sentenced to 31 years in prison.
A fourth defendant, Kenneth Stone, is set to go on trial for murder and kidnapping in October.
Vodder has 30 days to appeal the judges sentencing.
Snow’s body has not yet been located. Detectives asked anyone who has information about the case to contact the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.
