TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The East Texas man charged with a September 2012 murder appeared in court Wednesday morning.

According to Smith County District Attorney Matt Bingham, 70-year-old Anthony Miller waived his right to a jury trial and will enter a plea in the case October 4. He is charged with the murder of 34-year-old Adam Palacios of Tyler.

Miller was arrested June 3 after new information was gathered regarding Palacios' death, which occurred on County Road 35 in Tyler. Family members reported Palacios missing in September 2012. A few weeks later, Miller called authorities and led them to the man's body.

Miller will remain in the Smith County Jail until his hearing in which he will plead and be sentenced.
