There were more sordid stories of affairs at the murder trial of former APD officer Levi Chavez.

Today, there was testimony that Tera Chavez had an affair with another APD officer shortly before she was found dead. Prosecutors say that Chavez killed his wife. The defense says Tera Chavez killed herself.

At times today’s testimony got too hot for tweets or TV.    

APD Officer Nick Wheeler was good friends with the lead detective investigating Tera Chavez’s death. He admits to calling the scene asking questions. He was having an affair just before her death and was afraid of his wife finding out.

"I was concerned about, if anyone else knew that Tera and I were seeing each other," Wheeler said.

Levi Chavez’s defense lawyer asked just how involved Wheeler and Tera Chavez were.

Serna: How often would you have sex with her?

Wheeler: One time.

Serna: I thought you said you had sex with her more than once?

Wheeler: Not sex.

Serna: Oh I see. Not intercourse?

Wheeler: Yes sir.

Wheeler claims to have ended the affair a couple months before her death. And Tera Chavez didn’t take it well when he told her he’d be staying with his wife.

Serna: Tera would get extremely frustrated and upset when you would say something that would indicate that the two of you weren't going to be lovebirds for life, right?

Wheeler: Yes sir.

Serna: And she would cry and say that nobody loved her, right?

Wheeler: Yes sir.

Wheeler’s wife Samantha is expected to be the next prosecution witness to be called next week.
