Borce Ristevski jailed for at least six years for manslaughter of wife Karen

Borce Ristevski has been sentenced to at least six years in jail for the manslaughter of his wife Karen..

Justice Christopher Beale today imposed a maximum sentence of nine years in Victoria's Supreme Court.

The Melbourne mother disappeared from the couple's Avondale Heights home on June 29, 2016, with her body found dumped in isolated bushland eight months later.

Ristevksi, 55, was charged with murder in 2017 but pleaded guilty to manslaughter after Justice Beale ruled murderous intent could not be proved.

Ristevski has never revealed how his wife of 27 years died and Justice Beale said the "web of lies" had compounded her family's grief.

"You acted as pallbearer at her funeral. You played the part of the innocent, grieving widower," Justice Beale said.

The couple's daughter Sarah was in court for the sentencing.
