A California Highway Patrol officer in Los Banos has been fired for allegedly lying about her association with another officer who is charged with murdering his wife, authorities said. Laura Farmer, 27, was fired May 30 for "unbecoming conduct" and lying under oath during her testimony at a preliminary hearing for Robert Emmert. CHP Lt. Cal Minor said Farmer lied when she testified that she did not spend time alone with Emmert at another officer's house when the two were supposed to be on duty. Her testimony was contradicted by another officer who testified that Farmer and Emmert met on two occasions at her home while they were on duty and spent time alone together in a bedroom. Prosecutors allege that he murdered his wife last August to keep her from testifying against him on a spousal abuse charge.
