PROVO, Utah (AP) — The mistress of a Utah doctor is back at his murder trial as prosecutors try to prove she was Martin MacNeill's motive for leaving his heavily drugged wife to die in a bathtub.
Gypsy Willis told jurors Tuesday she received a marriage proposal and $7,000 diamond ring from the doctor months after Michele Martin's 2007 death.
The judge allowed prosecutors to question Willis aggressively as a hostile witness after they argued she was trying to protect the doctor with less than truthful answers.
MacNeill is accused of hounding his wife, Michele, to get a face-lift, then administering a lethal combination of drugs for her recovery and helping her into a tub of water.
