A Walker County Superior Court judge has ruled that testimony from two deputies will be allowed in the Sam Parker murder trial, but evidence from cadaver dogs won’t.

Judge Jon “Bo” Wood filed his decisions on Friday, July 31.

Parker was charged in February 2008 with murdering his wife Theresa, a dispatcher with Walker County 911 who has been missing since the night of March 21, 2007. Her body has not been found.

Sam Parker was a sergeant with the LaFayette Police Department when she disappeared.

A jury will be selected from Bartow County, beginning Monday. The trial will begin Aug. 17 in Walker Superior Court.
