According to prosecutor Mary Sandstrom, Brian had an affair, but did not want to give up his retirement in the event of a divorce.

& # 39; There was only one way to enjoy his retirement and his new love affair … that was to kill his wife, & # 39; Sandstrom told Judge Frank E. Flannery.

She also said that forensic experts found that the trajectory of the bullet did not coincide with someone who had shot himself, making suicide & # 39; impossible & # 39; used to be.

Sandstrom asked that the former detective be detained without bail. Flannery agreed.

Fanion's lawyer, Jeffrey Brown, claims that his client has never had an affair and that Amy suffered from anxiety.

& # 39; Her diary is full of problems she had … Seeking God's help to help her get through these problems, & # 39; said Brown. & # 39; They are not interested in the truth here. & # 39;
