Martin MacNeill

Utah Doctor Martin MacNeill Murdered His Wife — Here's How


A new 20/20 episode will take an inside look into the death of Michele MacNeill after she was found dead in a bathtub inside her home in 2007. Though it was initially ruled that she passed from natural causes, two of her daughters, Alexis Somers and Rachel MacNeill, suspected that their father, Martin MacNeill, murdered their mom.  

After nearly five years, the wealthy doctor was charged with killing his wife. The news series will examine the father-of-eight’s motive, his multiple affairs, his stealing his adopted daughter’s identity, and the family’s continued fight in getting justice for their mom. The ABC series interviews Alexis and Rachel who recount the horrific ordeal and how the siblings struggled after their mom died.
