GERARD Baden-Clay's mistress pressured him to leave his wife the night he murdered Allison, but has denied the argument had fatal consequences.

Toni McHugh said she still wondered what would have happened had they not spoken that night.

In an emotional interview with Channel 9's 60 Minutes last night, for which Ms McHugh was reportedly paid more than $200,000, the "other woman" revealed she had argued with Baden-Clay about their relationship the night Allison was killed.

MISTRESS: 'He didn't murder for me'

MCHUGH: How much was she paid for that interview?

SHATTERED DREAMS: 'I wanted to be Mrs Baden-Clay'

She broke down when asked if the pressure had any influence on his brutal slaying of his wife.

"I would have ... no ... no ... no, just ... no," she said through tears.

"I have been patient with the man for years and years.

"I was probably pressuring myself and questioning my own intentions, feeling like I can't be going down this road again."

But she said when Baden-Clay told her the next morning Allison was missing she asked him if he had argued with his wife.

"I felt terrible. I felt there could have been repercussions," she said. "What if we hadn't have had that conversation?"

She said it was hard for her to accept there was a link between her affair and Allison's death.

Baden-Clay, 43, was last week sentenced to life imprisonment, with a 15-year non-parole period. He has lodged an appeal.

60 Minutes last night also played an interview with Melissa Romano, who repeated claims she made to The Courier-Mail last week that Baden-Clay had asked her to "kill my wife".

"I was waiting for the part that would make it make sense, but it didn't make sense," she said.

"He was very serious. He didn't proceed any more on it, he changed the subject."

Meanwhile, in interviews with Channel 7's Sunday Night program, Allison's friends and family revealed the terrifying ways in which Baden-Clay tried to control her life.

"He used to have baby monitors in the house in reverse so he could hear everything that was happening within the house," Alison's cousin Jodie Dann said.

"She didn't have access to a credit card or a lot of money ... so there certainly seemed to be financial abuse there and psychological abuse there."

A former employee anonymously said that Baden-Clay would hug the women in the office and once asked her if she had ever had a threesome.
