Jill Easter, now known as Ava Everhart, a once high-powered attorney and her ex-husband, Kent, also an attorney, were arrested for allegedly framing Kelli Peters, a former PTA president, at their son’s elementary school. Peters claims that she and Easter got into a disagreement during after school pickup and that after that, the couple harassed her for a year and eventually devised a plot to frame Peters by stashing drugs in her car and having her arrested.
But Everhart, who denies hatching any plot against Peters, claims that after the schoolyard spat, Peters threatened her life.
“I do have proof that Kelli was showing up in private areas where we lived and also approaching my son at school,” Everhart tells Dr. Phil in an exclusive interview airing Wednesday.
Peters absolutely denies Everhart’s accusations. “All this stuff she says I was doing to her, she was doing to me,” she claims.
“How did she try and kill you?” Dr. Phil asks. “What was your basis for representing to the court, as an officer of the court, that she was trying to kill you?”
“She was following me, she was coming to private areas, she was approaching our son, she seemed unhinged, and she was issuing threats,” Everhart says.
“What were the threats?” Dr. Phil probes.
“It’s been seven years, I’d have to read it again. I don’t like to think about it,” she says.
