The founder of The Muesli Company has been sentenced to 17 years' jail for murdering his business partner in a vicious stabbing.

Peter Pavlis, 76, pleaded guilty to killing his colleague Jennifer Borchardt at her Richmond home, in Melbourne's inner-east, in 2017.

In sentencing, Justice Lesley Taylor said he carried out brutal and frenzied killing, but his motive remained unclear.

Judge Taylor told the court regardless of what triggered his actions, they were callous and cowardly.

Pavlis will serve 12 years in jail before being eligible for parole.

Pavlis has been diagnosed with dementia, and during the trial told the court he did not know how he stabbed Ms Borchardt.

"What I did I had no right to do," he said.

"I still can't understand how I did it.

"I'm sorry — she was a nice person."
