ER physician says doctor offered $10K to save wife

A Utah doctor accused of killing his wife offered money to an emergency room physician to keep trying save his wife, the physician testified Wednesday.

“He offered me $10,000 to continue my resuscitation and not quit,” Scott Vanwagoner said during the murder trial of Martin MacNeill.

Vanwagoner said he was already working furiously to revive Michele MacNeill, and the defendant must have known his wife was already dead.
