close this chapter and just go on with my life in a positive
>> that was lottie last year,
she told us she had closed that
chapter, but it turns out she
didn't, not by a long shot.
in fact in the past year, she
has turned this story completely
upside down with astonishing
we sat down with her again to
hear her new version of things.
so did not expect to be sitting
here talking to you again.
>> major turn of events.

>> it all began with a
>> mr. daker and i had a consensual sexual relationship .
>> yes, lottie now says she had
an ongoing sexual relationship
with what seen daker, that he
wasn't really her stalker, he was her lover.
it was something she had flat
out denied for 17 years.
>> if what you're saying is
true, you lied to the district
attorney, you lied in open court
to the jury.
you lied to me?
there are no words to describe
just how very remorseful i am.
what i did was wrong.
i am taking 100%, full
responsibility for what i have
done. the damage i have caused this
and his family is -- there's
nothing i can do to take it

the verdict started to sour.
she couldn't stop thinking about
something prosecutor jesse evans

>> he said that carmen 's
lifeless body was wrapped up in
five layers of bedding and i was
shocked and i started to get
pretty scared at that moment,
because i had given carmen two
blankets just before her death.
>> they were blankets she now
said that mr. daker and her
slept in together.
>> mr. daker used those blankets
on a number of occasions.
he was welcome in my home and he
spent the night and clearly i
knew his dna could have been on those blankets.
>> remember, carmen had been
found under several layers of
if someone of lottie 's blankets
was among them, i would could
explain how daker's hair got on carmen 's body.
>> this isn't a maybe, this is a
woman who's risking perjury
charges who's turning against
her own self-interest.
this is a woman who can explain
you have to take this seriously.
>> the paid expert witness for
daker is now working on the case
for free in his role as director
of the idaho innocence project .
he believes lottie 's story is a
>> now there's a logical
explanation of how the hairs got
there. this is one of those places
where you just have to shake the
system and say, wait a minute,
this is so obvious i.
>> i have a conscious, i have to
live with me.
>> so lottie decided to come

judge granted a hearing for a
but jesse evans wushts buying
