It doesn't seem inconsistant to me.  Laura just might not have felt 
like telling James that she was with Bobby when he killed someone.

Laura went out of her way to keep the dark side of her life out of 
view from people, James included.  If she had told him she was there,
he might have asked "what were you doing at a murder scene??", to 
which she might have answered, "oh, at the time I had just stolen 
a kilo of coke from these gangster types.  BOB tells me that Satan 
is saving a seat for me as a result of that night."  

Laura wasn't interested in this type of discussion with James.
