Telling jurors that psychologist L. Jerome Oziel had "implanted" memories in her of "things that didn't exist," Oziel's ex-lover testified Tuesday that she can no longer vouch for the truth of what she said previously about Lyle and Erik Menendez. Judalon Smyth swore to authorities three years ago that she had overheard the Menendez brothers say they had shot their mother's eye out of its socket. But she testified Tuesday that she had not really heard them say that.

Judalon Smyth alleged in the Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit that Oziel's lawsuit--brought in 1992 against her, writer Dominick Dunne and Vanity Fair magazine over an October, 1990, article--lacked proper legal grounds. A judge dismissed Oziel's suit in February.
