A Gold Coast man has reportedly tried to recruit three men to kill his wife to easily hide her body, a court has heard.
John William Chardon, 71, has been accused of killing his 34-year-old wife Novy, who was missing in February 2013 in a divorce dispute.
Chardon feared that his wife's lover was an & # 39; instant millionaire & # 39; would be heard his trial in Brisbane Supreme Court Monday.

A man allegedly met Chardon through an Asian dating site, Marshall Bari Aguilor, claimed that Chardon asked him to kill Mrs. Chardon at a meeting in the Philippines in early 2012.
& # 39; He told me he needed three assassins, & # 39; Mr. Aguilor said to the jury through an interpreter.
Asked why Chardon said he needed three in cross-examination, Mr. Aguilor replied, "So it's not so hard to hide the body."
Chardon pleaded not guilty of murdering his wife more than six years after she was last seen.
Mr. Aguilor has testified that Chardon wanted to lure his wife to the Philippines, where she would be killed.

Chardon would have asked Mr. Aguilor if he would like to carry out the murder and, if not, find someone who could.
They also discussed & # 39; finding a cliff & # 39; and hiding her body in a cave where her remains would eventually be found & # 39; so the children will find out & # 39 ;, said Mr. Aguilor.
& # 39; He said: & # 39; If you can find someone, I will pay US $ 10,000 & # 39 ;, said Mr. Aguilor.
When he asked why he wanted her dead, Chardon said it was because divorce assets in Australia were often split in two.
& # 39; He said to me, & # 39; and she has a boyfriend and that boyfriend immediately becomes a millionaire & # 39;, & # 39; he said.
The lawsuit also heard that Chardon responded to & # 39; any good publicity of publicity & # 39; when a former employee reported in the media about early investigations into Mrs. Chardon's disappearance.
& # 39; They are really trying (police) and they have nothing, & # 39; he said to Franca Canzoneri in a telephone conversation played before the jury.
& # 39; They do their best to find something. There is nothing to be found f ******. & # 39;
The process continues.
