Ex-doctor 'had to help' wife die by holding her head underwater, 2nd inmate says
After watching every minute of the testimony as an objective observer, it was
pretty clear all of these inmates were prevaricating to the max. There were
only two with anything that would be considered as a statement admitting to
murder, and they clearly had a plan to get deals long before they allegedly
heard anything. I think these witnesses actually hurt the prosecution as they
destroy the prosecution's credibility by not seeing through the obvious
schemes of these inmates.
I'm not sure who we are to believe. Martin MacNeill allegedly met up with
six different inmates and spilled his guts. That is possible but it's also
possible that the six met up to corroborate their story. Either side could very
well be lying.
It isn't just jail-mates who have testified of his errant behavior. His
daughters believe he murdered their mother, and certainly the man is a liar and
a cheat. I wouldn't want to be on the jury, but I'm glad he is being
tried because his behavior merits close scrutiny.

shown the prisoners didn't corroborate with each other and their stories
are much the same. If I was a member of the jury, hearing five independent
testimonies would be very important in helping me determine guilt or innocence.
Yes, but the jailhouse snitches are all saying the same thing.
@CHS 85: If I was on the jury, I would give zero credence to anybody who is
receiving a deal from the government in return for testimony. They have all the
reason in the world to say what the government wants them to say.
Jailhouse snitches are such credible witnesses.
Man, this is a hard one for the jury. But if he walks like a duck and sounds
like a duck, he just might be one.
