PROVO — Attorneys for a former Pleasant Grove doctor filed a motion Monday morning asking a judge to dismiss the murder charge against him.

Attorneys Randall Spencer and Susanne Gustin asked that the case be dismissed or that the Utah County Attorney’s Office be disqualified from prosecuting the case against Martin MacNeill. MacNeill has been charged in the 2007 death of his wife, Michele MacNeill.

In a 47-page memorandum outlining the reasons for their motion the attorneys wrote, “One of the main reasons for this motion is that the defense team has obtained ‘explosive’ information from a ‘thumb drive’ containing nearly one thousand pages of documents that were not provided to counsel after repeated requests for information from the Utah County Attorney’s Office.” read more »

PROVO — Prosecutors expect to call as many as two dozen witnesses at a hearing next month to determine whether a Pleasant Grove doctor should stand trial in the death of  his wife.

“There will be a lot of evidence in this case,” assistant Utah County attorney Chad Grunander said Tuesday. “It is a complex case.”

Fourth District Judge Samuel D. McVey scheduled a five-day preliminary hearing to start Oct. 5 and then resume Oct. 9-12.

Martin MacNeill, 56, is accused of giving his wife, Michele, a dangerous combination of drugs and drowning her in the bathtub of their upscale home in April 2007. He is charged with murder and obstruction of justice.

He appeared in court Tuesday handcuffed and shackled and wearing a blue jail jumpsuit. Two of his daughters and other relatives sat on the front row but did not hold up photos of Michele MacNeill as they did during a previous court hearing. read more »
