Several Detectives To Speak At Ristevski Committal

A number of police officers are scheduled to give evidence at the high-profile committal hearing for accused wife-killer Borce Ristevski in Melbourne.

The 54-year-old claimed his wife Karen Ristevski left the couple's Avondale Heights home in June 2016 and never returned.

But prosecutors allege Borce murdered her and dumped her body in bushland north-west of Melbourne.

Karen's remains were discovered by two horticulturists working at Macedon Regional Park eight months after she disappeared.

It's alleged Borce drove his wife's Mercedes-Benz roadster to dump the body and lied to detectives about his movements to avoid detection.

A hearing is underway in Melbourne Magistrates Court to determine if there is enough evidence to send Borce to trial.

His daughter Sarah Ristevksi testified earlier this week and said her parents rarely fought and that her dad was "extremely worried" when Karen vanished.

Another witness spoke of seeing a black Mercedes like Karen's near where her body was found and around the time of her disappearance.

Rosemary Davies was on her way to the Trading Post cafe when she saw the "sporty" car at an intersection on Salisbury Road at Mount Macedon, thinking it looked a bit lost.

"It had no indicator on. It almost hesitated," she said on Wednesday.

"I'm thinking to myself, I wonder if they know where they're going."

Borce was charged in December 2017 and he is in custody, facing court each day in a charcoal suit.

Prosecutors have compiled a 22,000-page evidence brief, including CCTV footage of a Mercedes, phone recordings and telecommunications data.

Four police officers are due to speak at the hearing on Thursday.
