The only decent thing he's done is spare his daughter the trial. I await his sentencing.

Gosh, that is just so sad.

He has not only destroyed one life but also those of their children and extended family.

I feel so sad for their children, they deserve so much more!

So pleased to hear this - for the family's sake. Him? He can rot in gaol with Pell.

Disgusting piece of scum.

Bad enough that he murdered his wife - unspeakable in itself -  but looking back at all those photos of him at press conferences, at her funeral; arms round his devastated daughter, pleading for information about Karen's disappearance, all the while knowing exactly where she was, that he was responsible for her death.

How could he do that to his child? How could he live with himself? Look her in the eye? Un-****ing-fathomable.

So bloody angry I can barely string a sentence together, and so desperately sad for her daughter. I hope he rots.

So sad for Karen's daughter. I can't imagine what she is going thru.

9 years. 9 ****ing years. Eligible for parole in 6, I think I saw.

I am so gddamn furious I can hardly type. Is that all her life was worth?

Rest gently, Karen. You deserved so much better.

Agree, the sentence is a joke. In Brisbane today a man got life for murder. So should Borce.

So he will be out in 6 years and he didn’t even give her family a bit of closure by saying what happened. What a joke, her poor family and friends must be devastated. And her daughter is estranged from her family.

I agree, 9 years of incarceration seems insignificant in response to Karen's loss of life.
I'm sure there were legal reasons for the sentence but it doesn't "feel" proportionate.

I'm pretty surprised by the sentence, too, but if my memory serves me correctly, he pleaded guilty to manslaughter, not murder?


The judge also said there were aggravating circumstances (there sure were), so I'd hate to think how little he'd get if he'd fessed up straight afterwards.

ETA:  Another woman with her murderer's name on her headstone.

Gosh, I thought he’d get 20.

What a kick in the guts to all those who worked so hard on her case.

#14 skicat

Posted 18 April 2019 - 01:46 PM

I'm another one who thought he would get 20 years- the last minute plead for manslaughter to save his skin, never any explaination to her family about what happened and lastly, his ongoing coverup to delay discovery of her body.

To me certainly not an accidental death in the heat of the moment.

Have I misunderstood?  The daughter is standing by her father?

#16 MarciaB

Posted 18 April 2019 - 01:55 PM

I just don't understand this!

why is the sentence only 9 years?? (with parole in 6?).  Surely all the lies and deception on top of a manslaughter charge would see more time than that??

I really don't understand our justice system.

Yes and she is estranged from Karen’s family. AFAIK she doesn’t speak to the media so no idea why she is standing by him.

The daughter, Sarah, provided a glowing character reference for her father and refused to submit a victim impact statement. What was she supposed to do?Who could blame her? What a horrible situation to be put in. How confused and heartbroken! No winners here.
I am gnashing my teeth
Women's lives are worth nothing.
How is this even manslaughter anyway? How was there no premeditation?
10 year mandatory sentences for 1 punch killings...I just can't...

I feel terribly sad for their daughter.   What an awful predicament to be in and who knows what she has been told by her father and whether any of it is true.

Yep, someone made a comment in either a 'keeping your own name' thread one day, or a thread about Allison Baden Clay's murder, and it really stuck with me.

#23 purplekitty

Posted 18 April 2019 - 03:08 PM

The sentence is a joke.

Possibly only 5 years with time served.
The fact that he did not confess until the night before trial should add years.

How much money,labour and trauma for others went into the investigation.

I don’t know if I said it in that thread, but i’ve said it elsewhere at least. It makes me sick. And it’s a compelling reason to keep your own name. Divorce is another, of course. My kids aren’t even teens yet, but I make sure my daughter knows you don’t have to change your name. And I make sure my son knows that of a woman keeps her own name, it doesn’t make her any less married or committed.

Horrific circumstances, to think her life is worth nothing.
And a big fk you to those Solicitors who represent scum like this man!
