    Anna suspected for a long time

    I am wondering if my sentences are correct. I have not used "that" and I would like to know if it is correct to omit it in my examples.

    1. Anna suspected for a long time her husband had a lover.
    2. Peter suspected his company wanted to get rid of him.
    3. I suspect the town council is deliberately neglecting the suburb because it is planning to demolish it and build new buildings.

    Re: Anna suspected for a long time

    1 should have that. It's optional in 2 and 3.
    I am not a teacher.
