Murder trial delayed for man accused of killing his ex-wife

ST. JOSEPH CO., Ind. -- A judge pushed back the trial for a man accused of killing his ex-wife.

37-year-old Joseph Wayer, III, is charged with murder and was expected to go to trial on June 25.

But his attorney told the judge on Monday he needed more time.

Police said Wayer stabbed his ex-wife, Barbara Sheppard, several times in the neck.

Her body was found in a Mishawaka alley in December, near Low Bob's Tobacco.

Wayer is now set to go to trial on Nov. 5.
