(KUTV) It’s been five years in the making, but a Pleasant Grove doctor is now suspected of killing his wife. Martin MacNeil,56, has been charged with the crime and has been booked into jail.

Investigators say MacNeil devised a scheme to make his wife’s death look like an accident. In 2007, Michele MacNeil was found dead in a bath tub.

Police say the Pleasant Grove man convinced his wife to have plastic surgery and then gave her a dangerous mix of prescription drugs. His children have long believed he had something to do with her death.

“My mom deserves this, she deserves justice,” said the victim’s daughter Alexis Somers.

Martin MacNeil’s attorney issued a statement saying MacNeil is denying the accusations.
