PITTSBURGH - A doctor accused of killing his wife by lacing a drink with cyanide appeared in court Monday.

A page from the diary of Dr. Robert Ferrante’s wife was unsealed.

After a third failed attempt at pregnancy, she wrote in part, “I just know that I’m incredibly unhappy, yet, I am not sure why.  I have wanted another child for years.  I think that thing missing is love.”

Channel 11 reporter Alan Jennings reported that it looks like the defense is trying to show that Klein was struggling with thoughts and emotions.

Also in court Monday, Ferrante asked to unfreeze $2.2 million in cash assets for his defense and child support.  Prosecutors argued the cash should remain frozen until a verdict is reached to protect possible creditors and restitution.
