Clay Waller is set to confess he brutally murdered his estranged wife Jacque Waller, his lawyer has said. The mom of triplets went missing two years ago -- the day the pair met with a divorce lawyer. Cape Girardeau public defender Christopher Davis told The Associated Press that her husband Clay will admit he murdered
the 39-year-old blonde today.
Jacque's Honda Pilot was found along Interstate
55 June 2, 2011 -- the day after she vanished. The only clue left at the scene was her purse. Jacque's body was finally found May 29 -- hidden on an island in the Mississippi River. Cops say the couple had been having financial woes and had been separated about three months. Clay was charged last year with first-degree murder.
Investigators said Clay Waller told his late father he broke his wife's neck and buried her.
It's believed Clay Waller agreed to plead guilty to avoid a date with the executioner.
