Wis. woman who married 'Rockefeller' to testify

Posted:
BOSTON (AP) -- A Wisconsin woman who married the man who calls himself Clark Rockefeller is expected to testify at his upcoming kidnapping trial.

Amy Jersild Duhnke of Milwaukee appears on a list of potential witnesses for the trial, scheduled to begin May 26 in Boston.

Rockefeller's real name is Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter (GAYR'-hahrtz-ry-tur). He is a German national who authorities say has used a string of aliases since moving to the United States in the 1970s.

Gerhartsreiter married Amy Jersild in 1981 in Madison, Wis.

The marriage enabled him to get a green card. Divorce records Jersild filed 11 years later show that Gerhartsreiter left the day after they got married.

Gerhartsreiter is accused of kidnapping his 7-year-old daughter from a later marriage during a supervised visit in Boston last July.
