Waller moved to prison in Louisiana

January 18th, 2012 in News

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - The estranged husband of a Missouri woman missing since June has been moved to an out-of-state prison following his conviction for threatening his sister-in-law.

The Southeast Missourian ( reports that Clay Waller this week was moved to a low-security federal prison in Louisiana. Since his conviction in October he had been housed at the Pemiscot County jail.

Waller is appealing the five-year sentence handed down earlier this month. He pleaded guilty in October to federal charges for threatening the sister of Jacque Waller in an Internet posting.

Jacque Waller was last seen June 1 and is presumed dead. Authorities say Clay Waller is a suspect, but he has not been charged in his wife's disappearance.
