On Thursday Ristevski received a prison sentence of nine years with a non-parole period of six years.
Karen grew up in New Zealand before moving to Melbourne from Lower Hutt. She and Ristevski were married for 27 years.
Her disappearance in June 2016 rocked her family on both sides of the Tasman. Her body was found in Melbourne bushland eight months later.
Her husband was a suspect from early on, but maintained his innocence until March 2019 when, a day before his murder trial was due to begin, he admitted to killing his wife.
Karen's cause of death is still unknown.
