Preliminary hearing set for Clay Waller
Clay Waller was arraigned in court Monday on charges of killing his wife, Jacque Waller.
Clay Waller appeared before Circuit Judge Gary Kamp on closed-circuit television.
He accepted a public defender but did not waive his right to hire a private attorney. Family spokesperson Laura Long Helbig says the family will patiently wait through the process.
“It’s the first step towards hopefully getting justice for Jacque Waller. We will be in court every time he appears, watching and waiting for a verdict.”
Judge Kamp set Waller’s probable cause hearing for July 25 at 9 a.m. He is charged with murder and tampering of evidence. Jacque Waller disappeared one year ago after meeting with Clay Waller to discuss a divorce. Her body has not yet been found.
