WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - Three family members and a friend of an Iowa woman accused of killing her husband and his girlfriend more than 30 years ago testified Friday in Waterloo about what they remember from the time of the slayings.

Theresa Supino’s twin brother, a friend and two sisters-in-law testified in the case against Supino, 54, who was arrested in March in connection with the 1983 killings of Steven Fisher and Melisa Gregory, the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reported (https://bit.ly/1CBV3CG ). Their bodies were found on the Copper Dallas Ranch northwest of Newton.

Supino has pleaded not guilty to two counts of first-degree murder.

Tim Supino testified that the night before the bodies were found, he brought his sister to the ranch because she wanted to talk with Fisher, and that neither he nor Theresa Supino killed Fisher or Gregory while they were there.

Tim Supino said he later dropped off his sister at their brother Carlo Supino Jr.’s home, where she and her two young children were living with Carlo and his wife Carol Supino. Tim Supino said he then went to work.

Carol Supino said she didn’t see blood on Theresa or Tim Supino’s clothes that night, but that she noticed Theresa Supino had an outbreak of hives while they stayed up talking until about 2 a.m.

Patricia Grayson, a friend of Theresa Supino in 1983, said Supino called her the day the bodies were found to ask about an order of Girl Scout cookies. She said Supino didn’t bring up her dead husband.

And Darlene Illingworth, Fisher’s sister, said when she and Supino went shopping for Fisher’s funeral clothes, Supino allegedly said that “he got what he got for what he was doing,” referring to his affair with Gregory.
