A writer on "Desperate Housewives" contradicted previous testimony from creator Marc Cherry that he had already made a decision to kill off Nicollette Sheridan’s character before he struck her on the set, reports TheWrap.com.

Former "Housewives" executive producer and writer Lori Kirkland Baker testified in the trial that she heard about the decision to kill the character Edie Britt in December 2008, when Cherry said he had "just got permission" from ABC network President Stephen McPherson to eliminate the character, the story notes.

Sheridan is suing for $6 million in the wrongful termination suit against Cherry and ABC, as previously reported.

Cherry and ABC Studios President Mark Pedowitz have both testified that they made the decision to kill off Britt in May 2008.
