Affidavit: Mo. Man Admitted Killing Missing Wife
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) -- Court records say that when a southeast Missouri father of triplets admitted to his father that he killed his estranged wife he suggested he broke her neck.
The detail was disclosed in a one-paragraph FBI supplemental affidavit admitted into evidence in federal court Monday during a detention hearing for Clay Waller. The affidavit also says that Waller's father told police that his son said he had already dug a hole and that he buried his 39-year-old wife, Jacque in it.
Jacque Waller has been missing since June 1. Waller has not been charged in her disappearance but is facing federal charges of making Internet threats against his wife's sister.
The Southeast Missourian reported that prosecutors are asking that he be held without bond.
