Martin MacNeill's Daughters Testify They Believe He Killed His Wife


Doug Daniels said he arrived about 20 seconds after the call and found Michele MacNeill appearing to be "a little discolored, a little bit puffy.

"She was damp, not soaking wet," he said.

He also noticed mucus around her face and said he did not recall if her husband, who was administering mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, had gotten any of the mucus on himself.

However, Daniels said he remembered MacNeill having "outbursts" and that he pounded on Michele's chest with the bottom part of his hand.

It was "not real hard, but I remember thinking you wouldn't want to whack somebody like that," Daniels said. Since MacNeill is a physician, Daniels said he assumed the doctor knew what he was doing.

Less than two hours later, Michele MacNeill was pronounced dead.

MacNeill's defense lawyers said heart problems were a contributing factor in the death of the mother of eight.

The medical examiner has never determined a cause of death.
