ST. LOUIS (AP) – A prosecutor is expected to spell out evidence this week against a Missouri man charged in the murder of his wife, even though her body has never been found.

A preliminary hearing is set for Clay Waller in Cape Girardeau on Wednesday. Waller is charged with first-degree murder. Jacque Waller was 39 when she was last seen alive on June 1, 2011. The couple was in the process of getting a divorce. Their triplets, now 6 years old, are living with Jacque Waller’s sister, Cheryl Brenneke.

Prosecutor Morley Swingle says he’ll call close to 20 witnesses at the hearing. Waller’s attorney did not respond to an interview
request.

Clay Waller is already serving a five-year sentence for threatening Brenneke over the Internet.
