Dr. Martin MacNeill is accused of murdering his ex-beauty queen wife Michele after she had a face-life and as the trial gets underway in Utah the prosecutors played the series of 9-1-1 calls that were made the day he claims to have found her.
RadarOnline.com is live streaming the proceedings and in the Provo, Utah court Friday morning the prosecutors played the tapes from the emergency services department where Dr. MacNeill is screaming at the operator and hangs up on them twice.
They are arguing that MacNeill was trying to delay the response of the ambulance by hanging up.
The transcript of the audio is below.
Martin MacNeill: I need an ambulance!
Operator: What’s the problem sir?
Martin MacNeill: My wife has fallen in the bathtub
Operator: Who is in the bathtub? Who’s in the bathtub?
Martin MacNeill: My wife
Operator: Ok Is she conscious?
Martin MacNeill: She’s not. I’m a physician
Operator: Sir I can’t understand you can you calm down just a little bit
Martin MacNeill: I need help

Martin MacNeill: She is unconscious. She is in the water

Operator: Ok Do you know how to do CPR?
Martin MacNeill: I’m doing it
Operator: Ok do not hang up
Dr. MacNeill hangs up on the operator again.
He is charged with killing her on April 11, 2007 and his defense team claims that he was at work while Michele was at home recovering from a face-lift and accidentally drowned in the tub after taking too many prescription medications.
Prosecutors believe that the 57-year-old doctor drowned her after giving her multiple drugs including Ambien, Valium, Phenergan and Percocet and they believe he wanted to kill his wife to be with his mistress, a woman named Gypsy Willis.
If convicted Dr. MacNeill is facing life in prison.
