An itinerant NSW woman who suspected her new boyfriend had killed her cat has been jailed for at least 12 years for fatally stabbing him in the back with a large carving knife.

Rachel Impson, 42, was found guilty in April of murdering Michael "Mick" Insley, 39, one night in October 2014 at an isolated spot at Windang's Picnic Island in the Lake Illawarra region.

He had turned up outside her tent, uninvited and without notice.

While Impson admitted killing Mr Insley, her lawyer unsuccessfully contended she acted in self-defence and was substantially impaired due to her bipolar affective disorder and borderline personality disorder.

  Male Model George Koh Jailed For Murder Of More Successful Rival, Harry Uzoka Male model George Koh, 24, has been jailed for at least 25 years at the Old Bailey for murdering his more successful fashion rival. Harry Uzoka, 25, was stabbed in the heart after a row over a girlfriend. He collapsed and died in the street outside his Shepherd’s Bush home.Koh had denied murder, claiming he carried two knives because he was scared Uzoka and his friends would beat him up.But last month a jury at the Old Bailey found him guilty of murder, along with his machete-wielding friend Merse Dikanda, 24.Personal trainer Jonathan Okigbo, also 24, was convicted of manslaughter.

In jailing her in the Supreme Court on Friday, Justice Michael Walton found there had been "a modest degree of provocation" by Mr Insley towards Impson who had armed herself with the knife when he turned up unexpectedly.

She was in a "heightened emotional state" - not only due to the death of her cat Angel but also because of her mental health disorders.

Outside court, the victim's sister, Linda Reynolds, said the family was happy with the sentence although "no amount of time will ever be enough ... eventually she will get out".

She did not believe "one word" of an apology letter written by Impson.

Impson and Mr Insley, who first met about seven weeks before he was killed, had some run-ins in the lead-up to the stabbing during which she had asked bystanders to call the police.

Impson also received a call from the RSPCA shelter saying her cat had been found run over.

She sent Mr Insley a text saying: "I know you killed Angel, watch your back c***."

At her sentence hearing in August, Impson denied she'd killed her boyfriend in anger as she suspected he was involved in Angel's death.

Rather, she said she'd been scared and afraid when he turned up outside her tent.

Justice Walton said Impson had a demonstrated history of mental illness, was unlikely to reoffend and had reasonably good prospects of rehabilitation.

"I consider the offence to be in the low range of objection seriousness," he said.

He set a maximum term of 18 years in jail.
