WACO, Texas (AP) - Two weeks after a teacher died, her minister
husband was cozy with another woman at his daughter's birthday
party.

That's according to testimony Thursday in the murder trial of
Matt Baker, who's accused of killing his wife Kari in 2006 and
faces life in prison if convicted. Her death initially was ruled a
suicide.

But Jennifer Monsey, who knew the couple through church, said
she was uncomfortable at the birthday party two weeks after Kari
Baker's death. Monsey said there were no pictures of Kari in the
house, but she saw photos of another woman, who was at the party.

Monsey said she left after seeing the woman's head in Matt
Baker's lap.

Defense attorney Guy James Gray told jurors Wednesday that Baker
was having an affair but said his wife suffered from deep
depression.
