Borce Ristevski has pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Karen Ristevski, but he may never reveal how he killed his wife, and he won't have to. Ahead of his plea hearing on March 27, we explain what comes next.

So what happens now?

Ristevski didn’t give an account to prosecutors as part of the manslaughter plea on Wednesday. And he doesn’t have to as the court cannot compel him to take the stand and talk.

“The essential right to silence that exists is one of the benefits of freedom and also a cost of freedom,” former chief magistrate Nick Papas, QC, said.

Karen Ristevski ’s stepson says he knows how she died and why his father killed her. Here are the details as Borce prepares for court again. Borce Ristevski ’s son wants his father to be jailed for at least 20 years and claims he knows how his stepmother was killed.

“He might harm his position if he were to give evidence and he certainly can’t be interviewed without his consent.”

Former criminal lawyer Colin Lovitt, QC, said he would be surprised if Ristevski’s lawyer, David Hallowes, SC, presented a version.

“I would be surprised, tactically, if we heard from a defence on a plea given the state of the evidence as I understand it,” Mr Lovitt said.

It’s highly unlikely Ristevski would take the stand as, in the face of intense cross-examination from chief crown prosecutor Brendan Kissane, he could come across worse.

“It’s better to have a court or the public speculate rather than you be forced to give an account that can be picked apart,” another lawyer said.

Man fatally stabbed in Brisbane's southeast

Man fatally stabbed in Brisbane's southeast A homicide investigation is underway in Brisbane’s south after a man turned up to a suburban hospital with a serious stab wound and died early this morning. Police tape surrounds a unit block in the suburb of Wishart where detectives, SES, and forensic officers are scouring the streets, door-knocking residents and searching for a potential murder weapon. A black hatchback, understood to be linked to the 42-year-old victim, has been towed away for forensic examination, while police wade through Bulimba Creek in the bushland which backs onto the Lani Street crime scene.

He could give instructions to his lawyer, and his lawyer would then tell the court during the plea hearing what his client said happened to Karen.

It may be difficult for prosecutors to rebut what Ristevski says as there is no cause of death to prove otherwise.

“But that doesn’t mean the judge has to accept it,” Mr Papas said.

Another lawyer said Ristevski’s version could never be relied on, considering how his many lies after Karen's death.

“If he gave a version, it’s not worth the paper it’s written on,” he said.

“The judge will dismiss it as unlikely or untrue or a desperate attempt to minimise his own involvement.”

Short answer, yes, and it will be a difficult sentence for the judge. The agreed set of facts presented could say Ristevski killed his wife, but not how.

There is a long line of authorities that tells a judge it is not up to them to pick apart the set of facts agreed on by the defence and prosecution. If there are gaps or holes in it – namely, not knowing a cause of death – then so be it.

Will we ever know how Karen Ristevski died? © AAP Borce Ristevski arrives at court on the day he pleaded guilty to manslaughter. So what length of sentence will Ristevski get?

It’s hard to say what the sentence will be. The average manslaughter sentence is about seven years, but this case could be considered as one of the most serious examples of the crime.

The most aggravating factor is that Ristevski dumped her body, hid it in the bush and did not tell police where it was.

"It's a gross aggravation," one lawyer said.

There were also the lies he told to police and family afterwards – including withholding that he drove his wife's car then admitting he did, then changing his story about why he drove it that day.

His conduct to cover-up his crime did not prove intent to murder, as Justice Christopher Beale found this week, but this conduct could contribute to a higher sentence.
