Borce Ristevski's jail sentence for Karen Ristevski's manslaughter must be increased, DPP tells court
Prosecutors in Melbourne argue the original nine-year jail term given to Borce Ristevski for the manslaughter of his wife Karen did not take into account all the circumstances, including the killer's ongoing silence about how his wife died.Ristevski was given a non-parole period of six years after pleading guilty to manslaughter, avoiding a trial on murder charges.
Prosecutors will on Friday fight to extend the sentence for convicted wife killer Borce Ristevski.
Ristevski was sentenced to nine years’ jail with a minimum of six years behind bars for killing his wife Karen, who went missing from their Avondale Heights property on June 29 2016.
Her body was found wedged between two tree trunks in Mt Macedon bushland eight months later.
Prosecutors argued his sentence was manifestly inadequate and will on Friday appeal to have it extended at the Court of Appeal in Victoria.
Manslaughter carries a maximum sentence of 20 years behind bars.
