#MartinMacNeill trial, day 2 … some highlights.
Doug Daniels, a neighbor, testified that after he helped Martin MacNeill pull his wife out of the tub to perform CPR; described Michele as “lifeless.”
Kristi, Doug’s wife, said she could hear Martin MacNeill yelling from inside his home, found MacNiell standing over his wife who was “slumped” in a bath tub face-up, wearing only a black shirt.
Officer Ray Ormond said he performed rescue breaths on Michele MacNeill using a bag valve mask and that Michele coughed up about 3 cups of clear fluid, then coughed up foamy, more mucus-like fluid. But he became distracted by Martin, who appeared to be agitated and would sporadically start yelling comments such as, “Why, why would you do this? All because of a stupid surgery,”
Heidi Peterson (formerly Johnson), the dispatcher who took his 911 call, took the stand. Defense counsel Spencer made a point that she thought Martin was doing CPR, and that she misunderstood his address; Martin gave the proper address.
