ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) - Orlando’s police chief says a former fiance is the primary focus of the investigation into a woman who went missing after appearing on “The People’s Court” with the suspect to resolve a dispute over a $5,000 engagement ring.

Thirty-three-year-old Michelle Parker of Orlando was last seen Nov. 17. It was the day the previously taped episode aired of the case between her and 40-year-old Dale Smith. The abandoned SUV of the mother of three was found the next day.

Chief Paul Rooney said at a news conference Monday that Smith of Orlando is the probe’s focus and there are no other suspects.

He says Smith has refused to take a lie-detector test. The Orlando Sentinel reports that court papers show the couple has a history of violence.

Attempts to find a telephone listing for Smith were unsuccessful.
