The attorney for a Florida man accused of killing his wife nearly 40 years ago says there's no new evidence, no confession and no D-N-A match.

Seventy-eight-year-old John Bayerl made a Monday appearance in Milwaukee County Circuit Court. His lawyer was asking for dismissal of the criminal complaint. Dona Bayerl went missing in Milwaukee in 1979 and her body has never been found. Her husband was arrested in Fort Myers last month and he is being held in the Waukesha County Jail.
