More issues have come to light since my reporting of the Brent Cannon and Laura Garcia-Cannon domestic violence case, which will soon come to head in a South Bay courtroom.
Sources close to the situation told me that Garcia-Cannon became much more erratic as her domestic life with husband, Brent, was crumbling.
Anybody and anyone who she perceived as a threat was suddenly gone from the KNTV studios.
Two notable co-workers, Christina Loren, who anchored the weather and reporter, Marla Tellez, are no longer at the NBC San Jose O and O. (Owned and Operated station) More on that, later.
From a source close to the situation:
"She (Laura) was always 'very insecure about not being the star of the show. Christina Loren was an unfortunate victim of that obsession. When the focus started being on Christina, Laura went crazy and made sure Christina was removed."
Loren, who is working for a regional agriculture network in the south, refused to comment on this story, but a source close to the matter confirmed to me Garcia-Cannon and Loren had "tepid" relations at best. "She (Laura) basically hated her. Hated her because she perceived her as a threat to her own position."
Tellez was also on Garcia-Cannon's list of enemies --she knew there was no chance to get the lead anchor position at the station but got lucky with a potential Los Angeles suitor beckoning. She moved to LA and is now the co-anchor for Fox 11's "Morning News"
"Marla should have been promoted to the anchor gig in San Jose. She was an up and coming star who could never get traction because Laura complained to management. She was so worried that Marla was the heir apparent that it drove her crazy, " said the source.
