Lawsuit re-filed against former Central Texas pastor in his wife's death
Ex-minister wants bond back in arrest on murder charges in wife's death
The Dulins’ attorney, Bill Johnston, of Waco, called the allegations in Gray’s motion a “classless, desperate act.” “To me, it just sounds very desperate on their part, and it seems like it is irrelevant speculation,” Johnston said. “It strikes me as a tactic to scare Linda off from pursuing this case. But that lawyer doesn’t know us and her very well if he thinks that is going to scare her off.”
Yup, Mr. Johnston, you got that right.
Kari Baker’s parents, Linda and James Dulin, who refiled a wrongful death lawsuit against Baker on Thursday, reacted angrily to Gray’s assertions. “I don’t believe Kari ever had an abortion,” Linda Dulin said. “Nothing in the papers that were filed even suggested one. Mr. Gray has made an unethical claim that can’t be backed up.” Dulin added, “However, Jim and I loved our daughter. We were so proud to be her parents. Our love for her wasn’t conditional, no matter what happened in her life. Lies and mudslinging like Mr. Gray and Matt Baker are resorting to will backfire.”
Dulin questioned why Baker is the only one close to Kari who has said she was distraught, depressed and suicidal. Others have said she was positive, happy and looking forward to a new job. “Matt can’t have it both ways,” Dulin said. “He can’t say he loved Kari in one breath and then disparage her time after time. Not once since her death has he said anything kind or loving about her. What does this show his daughters, Kari’s daughters?”
Anyone else find it interesting that this bogus mud is slung at Kari on Good Friday? This is so unethical and desperate that it's almost humorous. Almost.

Family of Central Texas teacher re-files wrongful death suit
Re-reading the articles and the motion GJG filed. Okay. Re-reading it again. Hmmmm.....I guess I'm really missing something here. New accusations that prove his innocence? Nope. Can't find anything remotely close. Really, really weak try....not to mention rather unethical and low and desperate. And we'll see very soon which way things fall.
A former local pastor accused of killing his wife filed a motion to have those charges dropped.
Matt Baker and his attorney released new accusations against Kari Lynn Baker they said will prove his innocence.
That’s as her family filed a wrongful death suit against him before the statute of limitations runs out. It’s a murder mystery that's gained national attention: a former Baptist preacher, now accused of murdering his wife two years ago. His attorney wonders how all the publicity will impact the case. "It's a two edged sword and I really don't know which way it will fall.
