After more than two months of waiting, high-profile Buckhead attorney Claude "Tex" McIver finally posted bail and is out of jail.

Claud “Tex” McIver is accused of intentionally killing his wife, Diane McIver, on Sept. 25, 2016, Diane McIver died after being shot in the back with a handgun. Fulton County Superior Court had delayed the trial, setting a date for March 5, 2018.

Bond was set way back in late Oct. 18 at $750,000, but because of issues with the ankle monitor service listed, he was forced to remain at the Alpharetta annex of the jail.

He finally posted an amended bond Dec. 11 and was transported to the Fulton County Jail around 9 p.m., where he walked out the front door.

McIver is finally home spending months in jail after he allegedly shot his wife. McIver claims he had fallen asleep in the backseat of the vehicle with a loaded gun in his lap when it went off accidentally and struck her.

Prosecutors had asked for a delay in this trial due to not being able to go through all of the evidence that was turned in.

Some of that evidence included 90,000 emails from McIver's wife's company, Corey Enterprises.

In October, McIver's attorney Steve Maples confirmed to 11Alive that the trial was delayed until March 5.
