Mistrial Declared in Houston Murder-for-Hire Case


After her affair with Jeffrey Stern, Gaiser is now expected to testify against him at his trial in a few months, stating that the two conspired to hire Flores to kill his wife. Jeffrey Stern maintains his innocence, as does his wife.

"I love my husband. I believe in him wholeheartedly, of his innocence. He had nothing to do with this, and he could not do anything with this. We are victims of a fatal attraction," Yvonne Stern said.

Paul Nugent, Jeffrey Stern's attorney, agrees with her assertion that the couple fell prey to an affair gone awry.

"He had an affair with a woman who developed a fatal attraction, and unbeknownst to him and her co-workers, was mentally unstable," Nugent said.

Though the jury could return with a verdict as soon as Friday in Flores' case, the couple will not know its fate until next year. Jeffrey Stern's trial is scheduled for February, and Yvonne, his alleged victim, vows she'll be right by his side.
