The dating website called Ashley Madison has a slogan: "Life is short. Have an affair."

Ashley Madison specializes in helping people cheat on their spouses.

On Tuesday, advertising executive Kathy Rettke, a west suburban married mother of two, testified how she met Allen Kustok through the dating website.

It was September 2010, just days before Kustok's wife Jeannie would be found shot to death in their Orland Park home. Rettke testified Kustok used the name "nothing ordinary" online.

Rettke and Kustok met for lunch, where she said that they talked mostly about Kustok's daughter Sarah, a sportscaster, because Rettke was a big sports fan. The lunch ended with a kiss.

Two days later, Rettke was visited by detectives who wanted to know why her phone number showed up on Kustoks' phone. She had even texted him three times just hours after prosecutors say he killed his wife, to end their marriage.

Allan Kustok told police that his wife shot herself in the face. Prosecutors hope to refute that theory with a blood spatter expert who's expected to take the stand later this week.
