Martin Macneil Murder Trial: Day 8, Karen Desoto Comments

A 10 minute ABC Special Report with Tai Hernandez reviews the Martin Macneil Murder Trial: Day 8, Karen Desoto comments, and joins Tai Hernandez for most of the segment to analyze the testimony from day 8, which included not only Macneil’s daughters taking the stand for the prosecution, but also his mistress.

Legal analyst Karen Desoto notes that this case has had a lot of character testimony; and that while each point on it’s own might not seem all that damaging, pooled together it is not just damaging, but frames out a strong position for the jury to find Macneil guilty.

The jury has learned that not only  did Macneil have a mistress while he was married, he had two. And within days of his wife’s death one of those mistresses moved into the house under the guise of a nanny.
