PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

The trial resumed for a valley woman accused of beating and killing her husband with a hammer on Monday.  The former boyfriend of Marissa Devault took the stand against her.

"A very exceptionally attractive woman," said Allen Flores describing his girlfriend.  He met Devault, who he didn't know was married after she posted a profile on a web site called SeekingArrangement.com.

"It's a match making web site primarily designed for people who want a relationship, who doesn't have a lot of strings attached, where it's actually a very explicit relationship for people who aren't looking for marriage or long term commitment," he said.

The web site claims it helps sugar babies and sugar daddies meet.

"Typically, the women who go on it say they're needing financial assistance of some sort and typically the men as part of the arrangement, would offer some sort of contribution towards their expenses," explained Flores.

Prosecutors say Flores loaned Devault more than $300,000.  Devault is accused of killing her husband by beating him with a hammer.  Police say she wanted to collect his life insurance policy and pay Flores back.

"A substantial amount of child porn was found on your computer, correct?" asked an attorney.

Defense attorneys questioned Flores after detectives found some child porn images on his computer.  Flores was eventually granted state and federal immunity for his testimony.

"You are aware of the fact that if you were convicted of possessing pornographic images on your computer of child pornography that you'd be facing a life sentence?" asked an attorney.

Flores replied, "I was informed of the penalties."

Devault claims she killed her husband in self-defense.
