In court, Cushman said that she met 72-year-old Edward Shaw online, but they later met in person at the Oceanfront. Prosecutors said that Cushman and Shaw had a sexual relationship, and Shaw gave her money to pay for college and start-up an HVAC company.

At the time, Cushman also had a sexual relationship with another man, Alex Novak, who she met online. However, when Novak and Cushman’s relationship went awry, investigators said Cushman texted Shaw and said she "wanted someone to be taught a lesson." To which Shaw said that "he needed more than a lesson."

Investigators said that person they were referring to was Novak.

Novak was a key witness. In court, he testified that he was with his good friend, Caroline Hendrix, on New Year's Eve in 2017 house-sitting for a friend.

Novak said he ran outside and saw Edward Shaw. Novak said he immediately drew his gun and shot Shaw five times, hitting him in the stomach and shoulders. Medics rushed Hendrix to the hospital, but she died from her injuries.

Detectives searched Shaw's car and found bullets, binoculars, and a zoomed-in picture of Alex Novak. Investigators also went to Shaw's work in North Carolina and found Novak's phone number and address.
