Dorner's Ex-Wife Was Reportedly 'Embarrassed' By Brief Marriage

LONG BEACH ( — The ex-wife of the former LAPD officer accused in the revenge killings of an Irvine couple and the slaying of a Riverside policeman was reportedly "embarrassed" by their brief marriage, according to the woman's family members.


CBS2/KCAL9's Cristy Fajardo spoke with the brother of April Carter, who was married to fugitive Christopher Dorner for a few weeks nearly six years ago.

According to documents filed with the Superior Court of Los Angeles County, the pair was married from April 27 to May 24, 2007.

Carter's brother told Fajardo that he never met or saw Dorner, but said his sister was married to a man for about "eight hours."

He said his sister, who may be employed with a law enforcement department, was so embarrassed by it all, she never spoke of it.

Carter's neighbors in Long Beach said they had a vague recollection of seeing someone with Dorner's description years ago.
