Witness tells of love affair with impostor

(Continued)

“He had asked me to marry him and I was loyal,” she said.

“Did you love him?” Balian asked.

“Yes, I did,” said the witness as her former lover sat at a courtroom table taking notes and not looking at her.

“Did you believe he loved you?” asked the prosecutor.

“Yes,” she said quietly.

But their relationship deteriorated and in 1994 she left to marry another man.

Manabe appeared nervous and said she would have preferred not to testify.

“It’s not a part of my life I like to talk about or remember,” she said.

Gerhartsreiter is charged with the murder of John Sohus, the son of a woman who rented her San Marino, Calif. guest house to the defendant.

Sohus and his wife, Linda, disappeared in 1985, and bones were dug up in the yard of the home in 1994. No sign of Linda Sohus was ever found.
