The Daily Herald of Provo reports that Martin MacNeill was in Provo's 4th District Court on Monday.
Lawyers say they will put on a vigorous defense of MacNeill at a trial set to begin March 5.
Michele MacNeill's body was found in a bathtub in 2007 at the couple's Pleasant Grove home.
Prosecutors claim her husband gave her a lethal dose of prescription drugs.
Medical examiners haven't been able to determine the cause of death.
MacNeill will return to court Nov. 26 for a scheduling conference.
