Murder trial expected to be set for a 2011 Mishawaka stabbing

A Goshen man, charged with murder, is expected to appear in court on Monday for a hearing.

Joseph Wayer III was arrested and charged with the murder of Mishawaka resident, Barbara Sheppard, in February 2012.

Sheppard was found stabbed to death in December 2011 in an alleyway near the Low Bob’s Discount Tobacco Store on the corner of Lincolnway and Byrkit. Officials say Sheppard was employed by the store at the time of her murder.

A trial date is expected to be set during Monday’s hearing.
