A man suspected in the disappearance and death of his ex-wife will stand trial on charges of embezzlement, tax evasion and perjury.
Dave Hawk of Lemoore was arrested in June on suspicion of stealing more than $300,000 from his children's trust fund accounts and lying about his income during child custody, visitation and support proceedings.
Hawk waived his right to a preliminary hearing Friday. His attorney said he will plead not guilty next month to 10 felony charges.
Hawk has been named the prime suspect in the death of Debbie Hawk, who was reported missing from her home in June 2006. Her body has not been found.
