The husband of an Avondale Heights woman found dumped in Mount Macedon has been charged with her murder.

Borce Ristevski was arrested and charged by the Missing Persons Squad about 7.20am.

He is due to appear before the Melbourne Magistrates Court this morning.

Karen Ristevski’s remains were discovered in bushland off Loch Road in Mount Macedon on February 20, almost eight months after she went missing from her home.
