A second woman who had an extra-marital affair with the Mormon doctor on trial for murdering his wife has testified saying that he talked about ways to kill someone.
Anna Walthall took the stand on Wednesday in the ongoing murder trial against Martin MacNeill and she said that she had a six month affair with the married father.
Ms Walthall’s relationship with MacNeill came months before his relationship with Gypsy Willis, the mistress that he was seeing at the time of his wife Michele’s death.
Ms Walthall’s testimony is particularly relevant because she says that the doctor told her that he knew a way to kill someone and make it look like a natural heart attack.
She told the Utah court that during ‘pillow talk’, MacNeill told her: ‘There’s something you can give someone that’s natural that’s a heart attack that’s not detectable after they have a heart attack.’
That goes directly in line with the prosecution’s argument as they allege that MacNeill forced his wife to have a face lift and then he plied her with unnecessary drugs effectively forcing a heart attack.
The defense tried to discredit Ms Walthall as a witness by bringing up her former multiple personality diagnosis.
She is the second former mistress of MacNeill who has been brought in front of the court, as Willis spent two days on the stand earlier in the week.
Today she was just mentioned by three of MacNeill’s eight children who were all questioned.
All three of the daughters who testified today- Sabrina, 19, Vanessa, 32, and Alexis Somers who now uses her mother’s maiden name rather than MacNeill- believe that their father killed their mother in order to pursue his relationship with Willis.
