WACO, Texas (AP) - The mistress of a minister accused of killing
his wife was expected to testify Tuesday as his murder trial
resumed.

Matt Baker preached at several Waco-area Baptist churches the
past few years. He faces up to life in prison if convicted of
killing his wife Kari in 2006.

Baker has maintained that his wife committed suicide because of
severe depression. His attorney, Guy James Gray, has told McLennan
County jurors that the case, initially ruled a suicide, was
reopened only when authorities learned that Baker was having an
affair.

Prosecutors told jurors last week that the woman will tell
jurors how Baker killed his wife.

Witnesses testified last week that, shortly after Kari Baker's
death, her husband and his girlfriend looked at engagement rings
and were cozy at his child's birthday party.
