Martin MacNeill Murder Trial

10/13/2013

Martin MacNeill will stand trial this week for the murder of his wife, Michele.  MacNeill is accused of pressuring his wife to have a facelift after which he heavily medicated her with a potent cocktail of drugs and drowned her in the bathtub.  All this was done so he could continue his affair with his mistress.

Jury selection will begin Tuesday and opening arguments are expected to begin Thursday.

The judge has ruled to allow cameras in the court.

If you are looking for more background on the case, Wild About Trial has a good recap.

    And we’re back 😀 Morning donchais.

    I can’t wait for this trial to start although I question some of the judges rulings. He needs to go down and hard for what he did to his wife and children. Thankfully he has persistent daughters and extended family or this trial might not even be taking place.

    Morning everybody! Just saw that Jodi tweeted she would be filing bankruptcy. ha ha ha.

        Yes, you did! And it’s true…

      • MMD
        10/14/2013 at 9:08 am

        Yup and it’s the best description I’ve ever heard of her and it is one that she would hate the most, which makes it even better!

        Ha Ha Ha……good one!! Although we feel she’s more like what comes out of that butt!! P U!!!

        P.S……sorry donchais…..we’ll all go sit in all the corners since putting us all in one means chaos! :>)

    I’m ready for this trial to begin. On more than one level, this case reminds me of Drew Peterson, what with the drowning in a bathtub and no forensics done at the scene.

    This judge is tough on hearsay testimony! I believe it’s the daughter, Alexis who won’t be allowed to repeat what her mother told her about her suspicions of MacNeill. However, she IS a doctor now and she DID take care of her mother just prior to her death and has a wealth of professional information to add to the case. I do hope she has her hands on the notes she took while caring for her mother, who she closely monitored throughout her recuperation.

    IMHO, MM waited too long to do the deed. Michele was up and around, doing laundry and going out to dinner when he chose to pounce. She no longer needed pain killers and sleep medication at that point, if she ever needed them at all.

    I am looking forward to the defense to try and “break” her testimony. Doubt it will work!

      Well damn, I had scheduled my week around the trial starting today! I was even trying to get into the Utah time zone. With opening statements on Thursday, and saying they were only going Mon-Thurs (like AZ) I wonder if they will make an exception and start testimony on Friday?

    • ritanita
      10/15/2013 at 8:56 am

      Well, after a week of getting slammed with 6-8 inches of rain, I have 2 days to clean the yard! Whoopeeeee…. (not).

      I expect a fascinating look at a sociopathic-type personality who manage to live two totally different lives for so many years.

    Hello everyone, after the Arias non-sentence, I had to ground myself from reading or watching anything about it because it was so upsetting, it was affecting my health. But I started checking in on you guys again a few weeks ago. I have 2 questions about this Martin MacNeil situation that I haven’t been able to get the answers to, and I’m curious if anyone here knows the answer. Where are the children living now? What happened to Giselle, the one he sent back to Russia? How long did they have her? I’m picturing someone torn away from her mother, sisters and everyone she has ever known and it’s heartbreaking. Is she okay? Is she in a Russian orphanage? Homeless? Thanks.

        10/17/2013 at 8:36 am

        Hello toots, they did say it wouldn’t last, gosh darn nay sayers, well I otta…..What I don’t get about MM is did he fake his transcripts to get into law and med school? Or did he fake his degrees? Also why would he ship his adopted daughter back to mother Russia, just to steal her identity for Gypsy? It just doesn’t make any sense. Its good to be back, where is beans?

    Mita Castellano :
    Hi all, I’m a newbie, does anyone know what tv station is covering the MacNeill trial?

    Welcome to the University of Donchais Mita. So glad that you joined our sandbox. There are a great bunch of people here and everyone is respectful of everyone’s opinions. There are literally people from all around the world. It is a safe place to post any comments or questions. Always remember, there are never any dumb questions or comments and everyone has something to offer.

    If you don’t want your email box flooded, I would suggest that you uncheck the follow-up comments at the bottom where you signed in because you can get overloaded very quickly. I know that during the Jodi Arias trial comments were going fast and furious each day of trial, a lot of times topping over 1,000 a day.

    The best part though is the accurate and hilarious recap that I assume donchais will be providing again each day after court. She really is funny and it helps if you have to miss a day of trial.

    We are all here because of our fearless leader donchais and her righthand/backup friend ritanita and we are all so thankful to have a safe place to post. Donchais does a terrific job keeping out the nasty folk and the trolls. It is truly the only place I would ever consider commenting because people can be downright mean and hurtful.

    So jump right in. 😀 Just remember though, that if we ever get back to Jodi Arias, Juan Martinez is all mine!!!

  12. MMD
    10/17/2013 at 9:12 am

    OK now I have something that I wish someone would clear up. People keep referring to this scumbag as a prominent doctor and attorney. Mrs. DP also mentioned this above.

    I seem to remember that in the 20/20 report that was done the retired investigator from the governor or attorney general’s office said that he had only attended one semester of university and his entire career was based on stolen transcripts and that he was not actually a doctor or attorney. Am I losing my mind or am I correct?

    I was asking a friend about how you could do this and they told me that it would be fairly easy to pull off (once you were in the system) if you were in a teaching hospital because you would learn the procedures along with everyone else and then later be getting others to do it for you.

    Years ago, I lived in a building that was next door to a large teaching hospital and there were another half dozen in a couple block radius. All my neighbours were either interns or residents and because I heard all the horror stories, whenever my mother had surgery I would always sign it and put Dr……., whoever the specialist was, to do procedure ONLY.

    Sheesh, these dr.’s throwing oxy’s around like it’s candy at halloween, are they all in big pharma’s pocket?

    • MMD
      10/17/2013 at 1:43 pm

      Sounds like it. My pharmacist would refuse to fill oxy and hydro at the same time. Just phoned and asked him.

      • 10/17/2013 at 1:49 pm

        Good call MMD, it would be interesting to know where MacNeill had these scripts filled.

  52. MMD
    10/17/2013 at 1:49 pm

    If you want to know about meds you develop as close a relationship with your pharmacist as you do your doctor because they know more. I would never take anything without a long discussion with my pharmacist and if there were concerns he would contact my doctor.

  53. MMD
    10/17/2013 at 1:59 pm

    Another thing that really surprises me is that he prescribed these meds well prior to surgery. What if they decided not to go through with it and were just doctor shopping? Geesh!!!

    didn’t he feign schizophrenia to get out of the army and was getting a huge disability pension from them up until a few years ago. Why did he stop getting the pension? and why?

    • 10/17/2013 at 2:24 pm

      Forget all the details, think they’re included in the 20/20 report – just another brick in the wall against this guy considering the way vets are (mis)treated by the V.A.

    are you watching it on HLN now, MMD and beans

    • MMD
      10/17/2013 at 2:39 pm

      No because it is mostly commercials and they are still on the opening pros statements. I was reading something else which I just sent to you both.

    • 10/17/2013 at 2:41 pm

      No for me too,

    Do you realize that the newlywed who allegedly pushed her husband off the cliff in Montana in July is set for trial in December. The judge refused any delays from both sides. Why can’t other jurisdictions get things on the docket (looking at you AZ) this quickly? Or at the very least, keep the trial moving at a swift pace, like most FL judges do? Even the Steubenville rape trial took place in a week with the jury coming to a verdict on the weekend and the boys being sentenced I believe on Sunday.

    Victims and their family’s should not have to wait years and sometimes decades to get justice!!!

    getting off soapbox now……………………

    • 10/17/2013 at 3:18 pm

      Aha! that’s why you need a knee brace, all that getting up and down from the box.

  59. 10/17/2013 at 3:30 pm

    Every time the camera show the defendant you can see that psycho weasel brain working coming up with rebuttals so, what does everyone think – given his past penchant for histrionics and BS, will he testify?

    • MMD
      10/17/2013 at 3:32 pm

      My gut says no but it’s early yet. I have to see more of his actions/looks, etc.

      • 10/17/2013 at 3:35 pm

        Given his nature, I’m leaning to yes, he won’t be able to resist, he can “explain” everything.

    10/17/2013 at 3:31 pm

    After hearing this I will NEVER have surgery on my face!!!!! I remember a guy who had a hair transplant (about 15 yrs ago) so I don’t know if there is a new technique, but he had 2 black eyes and a swollen face for a couple of weeks.

    • 10/17/2013 at 3:33 pm

      prolly and I think Dr of everything will go on the stand

  63. MMD
    10/17/2013 at 3:49 pm

    Notice that the def doesn’t refer to Martin as Dr. but as Mr. Interesting…………….. if he knows he’s a fraud he probably doesn’t want to commit a fraud upon the court. Just speculating…………

    What is it with these def attorneys that are in high profile cases and defending sex offenders, including sexual abuse against a child which is what Miss Piggy does, like Wurmi, tho she seems more specialized in sex cases? Gross!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • 10/17/2013 at 4:37 pm

      It’s fitting in this case too, don’t forget the good doctor fondled one of his adult daughters after Michele’s death.

    This courtroom seems eerily quiet.

    • 10/17/2013 at 4:40 pm

      notice this dr. refers to macneill as the defendant, showing no respect at all.

      • MMD
        10/17/2013 at 4:48 pm

        his loathing of him is very obvious, imo

      • MMD
        10/17/2013 at 4:49 pm

        and the def attorney is trying to get around it by constantly having a big smile on his face.

      • Marilyn N
        10/17/2013 at 4:58 pm

        defense attorney is a snake – comes across soft spoken, etc. but watch out!!

      • 10/17/2013 at 5:02 pm

        I don’t trust anyone who comes at me with a big cheesy smile the way this def. atty. does.

    If his wife was so depressed why didn’t the fake dr give her Zoloft himself. Plus for someone who is not used to anxiety meds, 5mg of Valium on top of a sleeping pill is pretty steep imo.

    • 10/17/2013 at 6:32 pm

      And why is the so called doctor still alive when he stated he had cancer with one year to live.

  78. AWH
    10/18/2013 at 2:22 pm

    First off, I do not understand the defense attorney at all. I can’t stand that goofy smile he has on his face when he’s asking questions. It’s just so creepy to watch that smile and his facial expressions.
    Also this neighbor witness – Kristi Daniels – is a complete idiot. She stutters and has so many problems answering questions. She also seems angry. I’m sure it’s no picnic having to testify but she has had time to reflect back on that terrible day and she has known she would be testifying. This wasn’t a last minute surprise for her. I can’t wait for that Gypsy woman to testify….I hope they find this man guilty.
