Borce Ristevski has been committed to stand trial for murder after the death of his wife Karen in 2016.

He has formally pleaded not guilty.

Magistrate Suzanne Cameron found this morning in the Melbourne Magistrates Court that there was sufficient evidence for Mr Ristevski, 54 to be put on trial for the alleged murder of his wife.

It has been alleged by prosecutors that Mr Ristevski intended to kill his wife, and then drove her to a regional park where her remains were found eight months after her disappearance.

He was charged with murder in December of 2017.

At the committal hearing last week, his lawyers conceded that there was enough evidence for him to go to trial, but argued that it was not enough for him to appear before a jury on the charge of murder.

He has been remanded in custody and will appear before the Supreme Court.
