Man Testifies He Had Relationship With Theer

— A Sanford man testified Wednesday he had an intimate relationship with a woman accused of murdering her husband. The testimony contradicts statements Michelle Theer, who is on trial for murder, made to police claiming she only had one affair.

Charles McLendon said that he met Theer in November 1999 through an Internet dating service and that the two had an intimate relationship.

Theer is on trial for the murder of her husband, Air Force Captain Marty Theer. Michelle Theer is accused of conspiring with her lover, John Diamond, to kill her husband, who was shot five times and died in December 2000.

Diamond is currently serving a life sentence for the murder.
