Borce Ristevski to stand trial for the murder of his wife Karen

Borce Ristevski has been ordered to stand trial charged with murdering his wife Karen Ristevski in the couple’s Melbourne home.

Ristevski, 54, allegedly killed his dress shop-owner wife, 47, at their Avondale Heights home on June 29, 2016 before dumping her body in the bush.

A high-profile committal hearing in Melbourne Magistrates Court ended on Thursday with magistrate Suzanne Cameron finding there was enough evidence to send Ristevski to trial charged with murder.
