Dyer stated she was then told by Ted that Dyer could not possibly
have the baby because Dyer and Ronnie were not married. Dyer stated
she was further told by Ted Kimble that Ronnie did not have a good
job needed to support Dyer and the baby. Dyer stated Ted Kimble
began insisting that she have the abortion, which upset Dyer. When

Ronnie Kimble to have the abortion. Following the confrontation with

Kimble, who was also insistent that Dyer should have the abortion.
Dyer, sometime in the spring (May) of 1991, Ronnie Kimble came to

Dyer stated she broke up with Ronnie Kimble, after having dated him
for approximately three years.
entire time she dated Ronnie Kimble, Dyer stated Ronnie Kimble was
overly "possessive." Dyer stated Ronnie Kimble constantly questioned
who Dyer was seeing and associating with and never allowed Dyer to
be in the company of other male or female friends. Prior to dating
Ronnie Kimble, Dyer stated she dated Ted Kimble off and on.
Dyer stated and recalls on one occasion while dating Ronnie Kimble, she was at her place of employment, Mayflower Seafood Restaurant in Greensboro, North Carolina, when Ronnie Kimble came to the above restaurant, wanting to see and speak with Dyer. Dyer stated she refused to leave the restaurant to speak with Ronnie Kimble and while standing at the door, she observed
Kimble pointing a rifle at her. During their relationship, Dyer

Ronnie Kimble was also prejudiced against blacks ad recalls on one
occasion when Ronnie Kimble observed some young black males
(approximately 12 years of age) walking on High Point Road in
Greensboro, North Carolina, when he told Dyer to "Raise up, I'm
going to get my gun, " because Ronnie Kimble thought the young black
males might throw some rocks at his truck. After this, Dyer stated
Ronnie Kimble turned his truck around and began driving in the
direction of the young black males.
Dyer stated Ronnie Kimble has always been dominated by his older
brother Ted. According to Dyer, Ronnie would drop whatever he was
doing whenever Ted called. On a past occasion and while at Ted and
Ronnie Kimble's residence, Dyer stated she recalls Ted and Ronnie
talking about "staging" a vehicle wreck to collect the insurance
proceeds. Prior to her involvement with Ronnie Kimble, Dyer stated
she recalls being told by Ronnie Kimble that he and Ted Kimble had,
in fact, staged a vehicle accident. As part of the scheme, Ted broke
Ronnie's nose to appear as though Ronnie sustained the broken nose
during the accident. As a result of the "staged" accident, Dyer
stated she was told by Ronnie that he was provided with part of the
insurance money by Ted.
