Wife killer Borce Ristevski could be free from jail in less than FIVE years as judge slams him for 'spinning a web of lies' and a lack of remorse - despite his daughter's 'glowing' character reference Passing sentence in Victoria's Supreme Court this morning, Justice Christopher Beale castigated Ristevski for his 'rank deceit,' saying 'for years, you continued spinning your web of lies'. Ristevski killed his wife Karen, 47, at their Melbourne home in June 2016 before dumping her body in a national park where it was found eight months later. The 55-year-old feigned innocence for almost three years, lying to the police, the public and his daughter, even carrying his wife's coffin at her funeral, until pleading guilty to manslaughter on the eve of his murder trial last month.

But with time already served and a non-parole period of six years, he may be out before his 60th birthday.

Ristevski has shed no light on what happened on June 29, 2016, when he killed his dress-shop owner wife before disposing her body in between two logs and covering it with foliage.

A police source told the Herald Sun new laws could be considered by the Victorian government to ban killers from parole if they don't explain the circumstances of their victim's death.

The source compared the potential changes to reforms passed in 2016 where killers were not eligible for early release if they did not share the location of the victim's body.

'Why is it any different to someone who won't help find a body? Why should he get parole if he doesn't provide answers? This tortures everyone,' the source said.

Their parole time is stopped when the warrant is issued and starts only after they are arrested. The United States is the only nation in the world where parole is a politically divisive issue. The practice of paroling enemy troops began thousands of years ago, at least as early as the time of Carthage

Killers aren't known for their sensitivity, but there's something truly horrific about murders who inflict severe pain on their victims while they 're still alive. Some truly gruesome crimes committed by twisted killers include ripping apart their victims while they 're still alive - the kind of thing animals do.

'It would not undermine the right to silence. It would have no impact on conviction.'

The officer added that Ristevski would likely walk free from jail after the six years.

A government spokesman determined it would not be appropriate to comment as the Office of Public Prosecutions are reviewing the sentence, which could pave the way to an appeal.

'This sentence, like all sentences, will be under review for possible appeal. However, no decision has been made as yet,' a spokesman told The Age.

Michael O'Brien, the Victorian Opposition leader, said the sentence did not fit the crime.

'Too many Victorians will be looking at the sentence handed down to Ristevski and shaking their heads,' Mr O'Brien said.

'That's not justice, that's not justice or anything like it, but that's where we are in Victoria at the moment.'

He said: 'Nothing is going to bring Karen back but today was about justice. We didn't get justice today, at all.

'As a society, at some stage in regards to domestic violence we must make a stand.'

Former homicide detective Charlie Bezzina told A Current Affair Ristevski won't disclose any further details about the crime as he has 'nothing to gain' from doing so.

'If he hasn't said how he killed her to this point he won't say it into the future, I wouldn't imagine,' he said.

'He's got nothing to gain by it and he doesn't want to then place himself in a position of how he killed her.'

In a packed courtroom on Thursday morning, Justice Christopher Beale castigated Ristevski for his 'rank deceit,' saying 'for years, you continued spinning your web of lies'.

Calculated moves? Borce Ristevski's steps after he killed Karen Whether he intended it or not, nearly every ruthless decision that Borce Ristevski made on the day he killed his wife and in the years since helped him beat a murder rap and lessen his time in jail.

'When Karen's body was discovered after eight months, you acted as a pallbearer, playing the part of the innocent grieving widower,' he said.

The unexpected guilty plea in mid-March came after he vehemently denied involvement in Karen's death for almost three years.

Justice Beale ruled that Ristevski's actions after the killing, when he played the role of grieving husband, could not be used to prove 'murderous intent'.

A new indictment with the lesser charge of manslaughter was subsequently filed and Ristevski pleaded guilty.
