Rarely is a mistress motive to kill a wife and family relationship. And this is
a witch hunt case with an orchestrated testimony of the mistress to imply she
was an asset to kill for. Prosecutors have become insane with power and greed
and use any means to promote themselves into political careers at the expense of
conviction counts. Guilt, trials, law and order are irrelevant, its the wins
that count and any means to meet their dream state.Why would any man
kill his wife for a mistress? Its legal and publicly acceptable relationships
and he had nothing to fear if his wife and family knew about it. And apparently
everyone knew about the affair so why kill his wife? Its the year of hocus-pocus
and magic justice and their magic illusions prosecutors can create if given
enough money, and money is no object and technology is lucrative means in
So they are prosecuting why? If they have no definitive proof he did it, how do
they expect to convict? I just dont see a conviction happening for the murder
"Prosecutors have become insane with power and greed and use any means to
promote themselves into political careers at the expense of conviction
counts."That's a pretty serious charge. I am wondering if
you have any particular Utah County prosecutor in mind. Which prosecutor stands
to benefit politically from this trial?As to the question of why any
man would kill his wife for a mistress, I suppose you would have to ask the
countless number of men who have done it. The notion that men don't do it
is, of course, extraordinarily naive.

Anyone who has followed this case and the "career" of McNeill would have
NO problem understanding why he has been charged with murdering his wife. There is a book by Scott Peck who wrote "The Road Less
Traveled." It is called "People of the Lie." I would suggest that
anyone who reads it will be very enlightened about the kind of person who can
commit a crime like this.I have followed this case for years and am
in complete sympathy with the children and totally understand why they feel the
way they do.
My2Cents: You write: "Why would any man kill his wife for a mistress?"
Think about it: Wealthy man. Mistress. Wife who discovers the
affair (or maybe had just found out) and divorces him. Half his wealth lost.
His family lost. His reputation and good name lost. His professional practice
effected. The point is, he had a LOT to lose. Maybe a better
question to ask: "Why do his children believe he killed their mother?"
Thats quite telling! They've not only lost their mother, they've lost
their dad. I think their strong suspicion is worth looking into. If I were
you, I wouldn't be so quick to jump attorneys. I think the question of
guilt is worthy of a trial.
@My2Cents:"Why would any man kill his wife for a
mistress?"Odd question. The two most common motives for murder
are money and passion. I'll reserve judgment on the McNeill case until the
prosecution has put on all its evidence, but seriously, killing a spouse to be
with a lover is not exactly unusual in the annals of criminal history.
2cents,"An explanation is worthless to the person who needs one."
my 2 cents. The family has been trying for years to get prosecutors to bring
charges. Where have you been. The story was featured on TV, I believe dateline
or 48 hours. There is a lot of evidence that a crime was committed.
Martin MacNeill wanted to take his mistress "to the temple" to get
married?Really? He'd get a temple recommend from his Bishop
and Stake President?Really?
Impressionist, I was wondering that myself...Did she seriously think
getting married in the Temple was an option???Does she think any
jury will believe that either?Both the doctor and his mistress make
