(Newser) – Terri Horman's circle of supporters is smaller by at least one: A court document released yesterday shows that, in his request for a restraining order, Kaine Horman told a judge he believes Terri is involved in son Kyron's disappearance. He also said that investigators told him that his wife tried to have him murdered late last year. In an interview with the AP, Kaine shines a light on some of his wife's issues, saying she began to suffer from postpartum depression after the 2008 birth of their daughter, Kiara.

"I think with the birth of our daughter, she definitely changed emotionally," he said, adding that she didn't talk to him about being depressed but did vent to friends. "She did have some postpartum depression after the pregnancy and she had some very strong difficulties with that." She's also twice failed a polygraph test, and has talked loudly about it, according to Kaine: "She would vent about the failure, talk about what she failed on, go into great detail about how she felt about it, and that happened multiple times."
