DPP appeals manslaughter sentence imposed on Borce Ristevski

The Director of Public Prosecutions Kerri Judd QC has lodged an appeal against the sentence handed down to Borce Ristevski for the manslaughter of his wife Karen.

Ristevski was sentenced in the Melbourne Supreme Court on April 18 to nine years' imprisonment, with a non-parole period of six years.

He had pleaded guilty to a single charge of manslaughter.

The Director has appealed to the Court of Appeal on the basis that the sentence and non-parole period are manifestly inadequate.
