Carter testified about driving the 15-20 minutes to Emory University Hospital as Diane was bleeding, losing consciousness and "making horrible noises." She said Tex McIver was holding his wife's head.

When they arrived at the hospital, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Carter testified Tex McIver called his lawyer and asked Carter to change her version of events.

"I don't trust these guys. Dani Jo, I hate to see you get wrapped up in this," Carter testified Tex McIver said. "I've seen how these things can go down ...You just need to say you came down here as a friend of the family."

Carter reportedly said she replied, " 'Tex, I just drove you into the emergency room.'"
