Melbourne local Borce Ristevski has been sentenced for nine years in jail for manslaughter. On June 29, 2016, he killed his own wife, dumped her body but, never accepted any involvement in her disappearance.
After his wife went missing for 24 hours, Borce Ristevski reported to the Victorian police. However, Mr. Ristevski himself came under suspicion as his statements were contradictory and misleading among police, family, and friends.
Throughout the investigation, the man shamefully went on to “rant and rave about police and media”. And until the eve of his trial, Borce Ristevski claimed his innocence and non-involvement in the crime.
Ristevski’s wife’s dead body was discovered in February 2017. Following the discovery, Justice Christopher Beale originally sentenced Borce Ristevski for six years without parole.
Initially, the Melbourne man was charged with murder but, this morning he was pleaded guilty to manslaughter. He has already served 491 days in jail but, he could be free from jail in less than five years.

Wife killer Borce Ristevski’s educational background is unavailable.
Mr. Ristevski’s wife used to own and run a clothing business. Although the convict’s job is anonymous, it appears his partner was engaged in the retail industry.
Marriage and wife
Borce Ristevski was married to Karen Ristevski for 27 years. His wife’s brother Stephen Williams has been very vocal about his disappointment on Victorian Supreme Court judge’s sentence.
“Nothing was going to bring Karen back, but today was about justice, and we didn’t get justice today at all.”
He went on to stress the subject of domestic violence. Williams’s voice is supported by domestic violence organizations including the likes of ‘No to Violence’.
However, the court claimed that Ristevski did not kill his wife with murderous intent. It stressed that apart from the commission to his crime, Ristevski has been a person of good character.
Borce Ristevski daughter and son
Borce Ristevski and his wife Karen share a daughter named Sarah. As far as her testimony goes, she had never seen any form of domestic violence between her mom and dad.
According to Ristevski’s daughter, the love between her parents was “something she hoped to one day experience for herself”. His 24-year-old daughter further added,
“The circumstances have left me without both of my parents,”
“All I can try and do is communicate the truth of how good of a dad and husband he was to my mum and me.”
On the other side of the spectrum, Borce Ristevski’s son Anthony Rickard holds a different stance. He wishes his killer father to be jailed for at least 20 years.
Race / Ethnicity
According to the prosecutors, Borce Ristevski and his wife were arguing about Karen’s clothing business in the morning of the crime. The business was in debt of $400,000.
