Blake feared for life after wife's death

BURBANK, Calif., Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Actor Robert Blake told police in recordings played in a California courtroom he was afraid whoever killed his wife was coming for him next.

Snippets of the interview recorded hours after Bonny Lee Bakley was shot to death May 4, 2001 were played Wednesday during Bakley's children's wrongful death suit against Blake, the New York Post reported. He was acquitted of her murder in criminal court.

The star of "Baretta" told police his wife and mother of his infant daughter, Rosie, conned lonely men with nude photos and promises of love.

"She puts advertisements in all kinds of sex papers ... and guys write to her," Blake said on the tape. "It's a whole mail-fraud scheme behind something that seems legitimate."

Blake said he was afraid the killer would come after him next and told police he wanted to change his will to make sure Rosie is provided for in the event of his death.
