Mr Rickard, who has a long history of drug abuse and addiction, claimed he had been having an affair with his stepmother Karen before she was killed.

'He knew what was going on between me and Karen but he did nothing, he didn't protect me, he was a coward,' Mr Rickard claimed to news.com.au.

It isn't the first time Mr Rickard has voiced the unsubstantiated claims.

In Facebook posts from 2016, he accused Ristevski of allowing him to do drugs and claimed that Karen's 'fantasy' was to run away with him.

Later that year he reportedly demanded $200,000 from a television network for a tell-all about the supposed affair.

Ristevski sensationally changed his plea yesterday on the eve of his five-week trial for the murder of 47-year-old Melbourne retailer Karen Ristevski , his wife of more than two decades. But Anthony Rickard, Ristevski ’ s son from a previous relationship, says his father ’s backflip had nothing to do

Daily Mail Australia understands the couple's only daughter, Miss Ristevski, was surprised by the sudden guilty plea and hadn't expected it.

Miss Ristevski was not present at the court during the pre-trial hearing. She wasn't allowed to be, as she had been listed as a prosecution witness in her father's trial.

Since her mum's disappearance, Miss Ristevski has had to endure the loss of one parent, the callous betrayal of her father, and the public's macabre fascination with the case.

Sources with knowledge of the situation said '(Miss Ristevski) did not' anticipate the plea.

Ristevski's sudden confession came after a Victorian Supreme Court judge ruled that crucial prosecution evidence of Ristevski's 'murderous intent' was inadmissible.

Crown prosecutors hinged their murder charge on evidence about Ristevski's behaviour after Karen's disappearance in mid-2016.

Karen's body, found wedged between two logs in a national park months after she vanished, was too badly decomposed for there to be a conclusive cause of death.

Ristevski's manslaughter plea means he will avoid a life sentence, the maximum penalty for a murder charge.

In a haze after her mother's disappearance, Miss Ristevski had to stand by her father during a public appeal for information in mid-2016.

It was then that the first questions were bluntly raised about Ristevski.

'Did you kill Karen, Borce?' a TV reporter asked the family patriarch. Ristevski did not answer.

The media conference came to a swift, teary end. In private, Ristevski blamed police for trying to 'pin' the crime on him, a court heard.

Last year, the young lady appeared in court at her father's committal as a witness called by the prosecution where she made her first detailed public remarks about the case.

'Dad was always the calm one,' she said.

The couple would often argue over their fashion boutique Bella Bleu, she said. The chain was struggling.

She questioned him about why his phone was switched off, the committal hearing was told.
