PHOENIX (CBS5) -

The woman accused of murder in the disappearance of her 5-year-old daughter will go on trial in a little less than a year from now.

Judge Rosa Mroz set Aug. 4, 2014, to begin the first-degree murder trial of Jerice Hunter, who is charged in the death of Jhessye Shockley.

Jhessye disappeared from her Glendale home in October 2011, though her body has never been found.

Mroz set the next court date for Hunter at 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 2, and a final trial management conference for July 28, 2014.

Glendale police said they believe Jhessye was killed and her body was put in a Tempe trash bin.

Police searched the Butterfield Landfill in the south Valley for months without coming up with any leads on Jhessye.

On Oct. 11, 2011, Hunter reported to police that her daughter was missing and has since maintained her innocence.
