MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Supreme Court has ruled out bail for a Montgomery man charged with capital murder in the death of his wife, a pet store owner who disappeared nine years ago.

The court ruled Wednesday that Albert Wilding was not entitled to bail in his capital murder case. Wilding is accused of murdering his wife, Judie Wilding, for financial gain.

She disappeared on April 1, 2000, and her body has never been found. At the time she disappeared, Albert Wilding was the beneficiary of an $800,000 insurance policy on her life.

A Montgomery circuit judge had set bail at $100,000 for Wilding, who was 79 when indicted last year. But the state court of criminal appeals ruled the bail should be vacated, and the Supreme Court agreed.
