Judge Derek Pullan has been mulling the new trial request since January, when MacNeill’s attorney, Randall Spencer filed a motion claiming a federal inmate lied on the stand about a possible early release he received in exchange for his testimony and that prosecutors did not disclose that a deal was in the works. “The question is whether there is a rea...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

In early July, a jury found MacNeill guilty of second-degree felony forcible sexual abuse, finding that he inappropriately touched his adult daughter. A different Utah County jury convicted MacNeill last year of murdering his wife by drugging her and drowning her in a bathtub at their Pleasant Grove home.
