He came with her to the abortion. He believed that the child was his. 

Whatever emotions he felt that day, thinking that his child was being terminated, were misplaced.

Because he was not the father; the woman he was dating was already four-months pregnant when the pair met face-to-face after connecting on

That scenario was one of several alleged by the prosecution on Thursday in Chalice Zeitner's first day on trial.

Zeitner made international headlines last year, after being accused of faking cancer in order to get Arizona Medicaid to pay for her abortion.

She never had cancer, a prosecutor told the jury Thursday.

But Zeitner's lawyer told the jury that his client believed that she did have cancer in 2010 when she sought the taxpayer-paid abortion.

Her lawyer did not say why she held that belief.

The duped boyfriend will testify in the trial, prosecutors said. He is now forever tied to her, because she got pregnant again.

And this time she gave birth, to a child that was actually his, prosecutors said.
