Tex McIver awaiting release after murder trial pushed back

Tex McIver is expected to be released on bond soon as he waits for his murder trial. 

McIver has been charged with murder in the shooting death of his wife, Diane, in September 2016. McIver has been in jail since April because of a bond violation after an investigator found a weapon in a sock drawer of McIver’s Buckhead condo.

McIver’s trial was initially scheduled to start on Oct. 30, but on Wednesday the judge signed a motion of continuance, moving the trial to March because both the prosecution and defense needed more time to prepare. The judge also granted temporary freedom for McIver on Wednesday.

As a condition of the bond, McIver had to arrange the fitting of an ankle monitor bracelet before he is released. McIver will be released on a $750,000 bond and will be placed on house arrest.
