ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio (AP) – A paparazzo has testified that an Ohio police chief told him he had access to ultrasound photographs belonging to the woman who carried twins for Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

Justin Steffman of New York testified Tuesday in the trial of Barry Carpenter, the suspended chief of Martins Ferry, where surrogate Michelle Ross lived. Carpenter and Police Chief Chad Dojack from nearby Bridgeport are accused of scheming to sell items from Ross’ home.

A special prosecutor has said Carpenter entered Ross’ home in May and removed items that identified her as the surrogate.

Steffman says Dojack offered to sell him the surrogate’s address and contact information for $1,000. He says Carpenter said he had access to the plaster cast and ultrasound photos.

Dojack faces trial in January.
