Father vs. son trial: wife takes stand

MARION COUNTY - It's a central Iowa case pitting father against son. And on Thursday, we're getting more details about the family dynamic.

Background: Shirley Carter was found murdered in her home in June 2015. Police never found someone to call a suspect, and have never charged anyone for her murder. Shirley's husband, Bill, alleges that the couple's son, Jason Carter, killed Shirley. So Bill filed a wrongful death civil lawsuit.

Today: Shelly Carter, the wife of Jason Carter, took the stand to help jurors understand the Carter family dynamic, and to also shed light on the affair Jason had several months before his mother's death.

Tara Kalzaurich also testified on Thursday. She's Jason's mistress. The pair had been having an affair for a while, and both of their spouses found out. Jason was texting Tara the day his mother died.
