Accused wife killer Gerard Baden-Clay will make a second bid for bail less than two weeks before Christmas.

Mr Baden-Clay has been held behind bars on remand since being arrested and charged in June over the alleged murder of his wife Allison.

He was refused bail in June on the grounds he was a "high flight risk", but his lawyers lodged a new application in the Supreme Court yesterday.

The second bail application will be heard on December 14.

If successful, Mr Baden-Clay could return home for Christmas.

It is understood Mr Baden-Clay’s lawyers will argue the brief of evidence against the father-of-three does not support claims made by prosecutors during the first bail application.

Meanwhile, more than 40 witnesses are set to be called for Mr Baden-Clay’s committal hearing in March next year, which is due to run for four days.

The witness list was only finalised earlier this month and primarily consists of experts.

Mrs Baden-Clay’s body was found by a canoeist in Kholo Creek on April 30.

Police allege she was killed by her husband 10 days earlier in their rented home in the leafy suburb of Brookfield, in Brisbane's west.

Insurer Suncorp has successfully frozen Mrs Baden-Clay’s $350,000 life insurance payout that was to go to her husband.

Mrs Baden-Clay’s father Geoffrey Dickie won control of his late daughter’s estate in September after producing evidence that his son-in-law had arranged, from his prison cell, the sale of a Paradise Point home the couple owned.

Court documents have previously revealed that Mr Baden-Clay's debts totalled about $1 million.

It is alleged he stood to gain about $960,000 from his wife's life insurance and superannuation policies.
