    There will be no arraignment for Clay Waller Monday after his attorney requested a change of judge.
JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

Clay Waller, a person of interest in his wife Jacque's disappearance, appeared in court Tuesday, on charges unrelated to that case.

Associate Circuit Judge Scott Thomsen reduced Waller's bond to a $27,000 surety bond, which could be paid by a bail bondsman.

He was being held on $55,000 cash only bond on felony stealing charges, and $10,000 on misdemeanor harassment charges.

Prosecutors argued against the bond reduction, claiming that Waller would leave the area if he posted bond, and that he had made threats against the family of his estranged wife, Jacque Waller.

However, Waller's attorney Scott Reynolds said the Jacque Waller case is irrelevant, and ultimately his motion for bond reduction was granted.

While Clay Waller is not a suspect, he is a person of interest in the disappearance is his estranged wife.

She went missing on June 1. 

At this point, no arrests have been made in that case.

Clay Waller's next court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 27.
