Pathologist Due To Speak In Ristevski Case

A forensic pathologist is due to give evidence at the committal hearing of Borce Ristevski, accused of killing his wife Karen.

The 47-year-old went missing from the couple's Avondale Heights home in Melbourne's northwest in June 2016, with Borce claiming she left to clear her mind following an argument.

Ms Ristevski's body was found at Macedon Regional Park eight months later and detectives allege her husband dumped it there using her Mercedes-Benz roadster.

Borce is also accused of killing his mobile phone signal on the way to the park.

An Optus technical specialist on Monday told the Melbourne Magistrates Court both the Ristevski's mobile phones were detected the day Karen went missing then deactivated.

Court documents showed Borce's phone was unable to make or receive calls between 11.09am and 12.51pm on June 29, 2016.

Karen's mobile last pinged to a cell tower at Gisborne, near the Macedon Regional Park, at 11.40am.

Forensic pathologist Stephen Cordner is expected to give evidence at Borce's committal hearing on Tuesday.

The hearing will determine whether the 54-year-old stands trial over his wife's death, the cause of which has not been determined.
