Dr. Martin MacNeill attempts suicide behind bars

1Dr. Martin MacNeill Latest News, updates ….

From HLN:  Martin MacNeill, the former doctor convicted in November of his wife’s murder, has been hospitalized after attempting suicide, the Utah County Sheriff’s Office announced on Friday.

Deputies at the Utah County Jail discovered MacNeill at around 5:30 p.m. Thursday during routine rounds, according to a press release from the Utah County Sheriff’s Office. “Those Deputies intervened,” the release says. 

Jeff Robinson, the Bureau Chief of the Utah County Attorney’s Office, said MacNeill used a razor to cut his femoral artery, which is located very close to the groin.

Sgt. Spencer Cannon, public information officer for the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, said MacNeill was uncooperative with medical officials as he was taken to the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center. Officials said doctors performed surgery to repair his wound.

MacNeill is under the supervision of a guard while he remains in the hospital, according to the press release. Robinson said MacNeill will be placed on suicide watch when he returns to jail either Friday or Saturday.

MacNeill was convicted of first-degree murder and obstruction of justice in the death of his wife, Michele MacNeill, on November 9. Prosecutor Chad Grunander said in his closing argument that MacNeill “carried out a cold and calculated plan to murder his wife. He relied on his knowledge and experience as a doctor and also as a lawyer to accomplish this.”

Michele MacNeill’s body was found by the couple’s 6-year-old daughter in the bathtub of their family’s home on April 11, 2007. She was recovering from face-lift surgery and had a powerful cocktail of prescription medications in her system at the time of her death.

Prosecutors said Martin MacNeill pressured his wife to have the surgery so he could then drug and drown her to continue an affair with his mistress, Gypsy Willis.

MacNeill will be sentenced on January 7. He faces 15 years to life in prison for murder, and he could be sentenced to up to 15 years for obstruction of justice.

    Hi all!

    Hope life is as good for you as it is here for us, NO SNOW. Love snow as long as you have nothing personal to do with it, just looking out from the window.

    This Martin Mac Neill reminds of Russel Williams, the Canadian high ranked military Colonel. Did´nt he attempted suicide with the help of toilet paper?

    Our dear Martin belongs in the toilet together with Williams and toilet paper.

    To Sal, I have a question to which I could ask in the in the chatroom, but to all; any body who can can recommend a RELIABLE travel agency if I want to travel in the US, tailormade.

    One more remark, suicide watch, why? This pig should be offered a weapon to kill himself in order to save money of the the state but above all, in order give peace for his children to move on. We all know that a loss of a beloved family member cannot be compensated by killing the murderer, never can give the right peace. Why don´t let them kill themselves. Cheap and fast, hopefully.

    The very intelligent Christina.

  3. Trial

    this guy is beyond disgusting and evil.

    I hope “Joulupukki” ill be good to you this year.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joulupukki

    Joulupukki is a Finnish Christmas figure. The name “Joulupukki” literally means “Christmas goat” or “Yule Goat” in Finnish; the word pukki comes from the Teutonic root bock, which is a cognate of the English “buck”, “Puck”, and means “billy-goat”. An old Scandinavian custom, the figure eventually became more or less conflated with Santa Claus.

    Origins and description

    The Joulupukki or “Yule Buck” is originally a pagan tradition. He is connected to the ase Wōden of the norse mythology and said to wear red leather pants and a fur trimmed red leather coat.[citation needed] Under the Winter Solstice – going by the names of Jólnir (yule figure) and Langbarðr (long-beard) – Wōden led the Wild Hunt accompagnied by Thor driving his a flying wagon drawn by goat bucks. The Joulupukki may also be a man turned into a goat-man on Christmas Eve, as it is seen in Elsa Beskow’s Peter and Lotta’s Christmas. There persists today in some parts of Finland the custom of persons dressing in goat costume to perform for leftover food after Christmas. Historically, such a person was an older man, and the tradition refers to him as a nuuttipukki.[citation needed]

    Today, Joulupukki looks and behaves mostly like his American cousin, but there are differences. Joulupukki’s house and workshop are situated in the mountains of Korvatunturi, whereas his American counterpart resides somewhere by the North Pole. Another difference is that instead of sneaking in through the chimney during the late hours, Joulupukki knocks on the front door during Christmas Eve celebrations. Upon entering, he traditionally greets the household with “Onko täällä kilttejä lapsia?” (“Are there [any] well-behaved children here?”;)

    He usually wears warm red clothes, uses a walking stick, and travels in a sleigh pulled by a number of reindeer, which cannot fly like Santa Claus’s fleet. In Lapland, his mount is a pulkka rather than a sleigh. The popular holiday song “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” in its Finnish translation, Petteri Punakuono, has led to Rudolph’s general acceptance in Finland as Joulupukki’s lead reindeer. Joulupukki is often mentioned as having a wife, Joulumuori (“Old Lady Christmas”;), but tradition says little of her.

    MCNEILL NEEDS TO BE KEPT ALIVE UNTIL HE IS SENTENCED AND TRIED FOR SEXUALLY ABUSING HIS DAUGHTER. IF HE DIES PRIOR TO SENTENCING HE WILL NOT BE HELD REPONSIBLE FOR KILLING HIS BEAUTIFUL WIFE AND HIS DAUGHTER WILL NOT RECEIVE JUSTICE FOR THE SEXUAL ABUSE AGAINST HER. WHEN I WAS A CHILD MY STEP FATHER, ROBERT NELSON OF GAINSVILLE GA SEXUALLY ABUSED ME. HE ADMITTED TO THE ABUSE TO A TEXAS ATTORNEY NAMED ROBERT JENKINS; HOWEVER, HE WAS NOT TRIED BECAUSE HE MOVED FROM DEL RIO TEXAS TO SHEMA ALASKA WHEN THE SEXUAL ABUSE WAS BEING INVESTIGATED BY THE BASTROP TX DA. I NEVER RECEIVED JUSTICE AND HAVE SUFFERED FOR IT MY ENTIRE LIFE (I WAS PLACED INTO TREATMENT IN TEXAS FOR A YEAR AND WAS NEVER ABLE TO GRADUATE HIGH SCHOOL…;) . MY LIFE HAS BEEN SUCH A MESS AND HE HAS BEEN ABLE TO RETIRE FROM THE AIR FORCE, REMARRY, AND WORK AS A CONTRACTOR AT FORT BRAGG IN A TOP SECRET JOB! THE STATE OF UTAH NEEDS TO SENTENCE MCNEILL AND TRY HIM FOR SEXUALLY ABUSING HIS DAUGHTER. AFTER THESE EVENTS ARE COMPLETED LET HIS TAKE HIS WORTHLESS LIFE.
