Clay Waller has a new judge in his murder trial and his next court date has changed.

Waller will now appear for his arraignment on first-degree murder and evidence charges Aug. 13, instead of Monday. A time for the arraignment was not yet set Wednesday, according to the Cape Girardeau County circuit clerk's office.

Waller is accused in the killing of his wife, Jacque, who disappeared June 1, 2011. Authorities say Clay Waller killed her after a fight over a pending divorce and money. Her body hasn't been found.

Judge Gary Kamp bound Waller's case over for trial early this week. The prosecution requested a change of judge, and the case was assigned to Judge Ben Lewis on Wednesday.
