Martin MacNeill, 57, is accused of giving his wife a deadly mixture of prescription pills after she came home to recover from plastic surgery in April 2007. A trial for the man, who is charged with murder, a first-degree felony, and obstruction of justice, a second-degree felony, began this week in Provo’s 4th District Court. Prosecutors allege Martin MacNeill was driven to murder to get rid of his wife in order to continue an affair with a woman named Gypsy Willis.
Testimony in the trial, which is expected to last five weeks, began Thursday and continues Monday.
