Iskov sentenced over wife's death
MILLIONAIRE Tweed builder Clayton Iskov has been sentenced to a minimum of 13-and-a-half years jail after pleading guilty to killing his wife in a special sitting of the Supreme Court in Lismore today.
Iskov, 39, pleaded guilty to the manslaughter, detention, causing her actual bodily harm and grievous bodily harm to his wife Kylie Iskov last week. The charges stemmed from an incident on August 6, 2007, when he abducted his wife, bashed her and then put her in a car and rammed a tree near Mooball in an attempt to cover up the killing.
The sentence will be backdated from the time Iskov entered custody on April 24, 2008. He will be eligible for parole on October 23, 2021.
Justice Graham Barr, who presided over the case, said of the Iskov’s actions that it was an attack that was ‘vicious and merciless’.
