Spencer doesn't even sound like he's convinced of his own argument LOL he's awfully quiet and not very animated like he usually is.

Oh please Spencer. It's okay that he disposed of the medication because he took an inventory of it first? He'd be the first one to jump all over a chain of ownership issue regardless of whether it violated any intent of the law.

Why couldn't Martin just get a divorce? So easy!! He abandoned his kids anyway...

Division of assets, alimony, child support, move out of the house, etc. Murder was a sweeter option in MACneill's twisted brain, with the added bonus of collecting on life insurance and becoming a swinging single bachelor once again.

I think that Macneill did hinder, delay the investigation by lying to the medical examiner.

Rather than stop at the end of the state's case in chief, the judge allowed him to wait until the lunch break for him to argue for a directed NG verdict. I can't believe the judge is letting him go on forever when he's going to deny the motion anyway.

So obviously the judge is not going to give a directed verdict since he's talking about jury instructions

These arguments for directed verdicts always crack me up. "The state failed to prove anything whatsoever these past few days. Please please please say my client is NG."

Ok, for those of you who have complained about the judge giving suggestions about how to argue to the defense. He did the same thing just now with Grunandar

The judge has seemed fair to me... I have not liked some of his rulings, but he always explains them for us.

Lol. He has to allow both side to make their arguments before he can make a ruling. Even if it is annoying or makes absolutely no sense from a legal point of view. I feel sorry for him sometimes. ;)

I wonder why Ada's teacher wasn't asked if her clear memory of Martin having picked his daughter up on April 11th was clear enough to recall if he was wearing a lab coat?
I've seen my doctor leave his office, but never in his lab coat. Do most doctor's wear them home?

I agree. I would have liked to see some different rulings here and there, but I think he's done a good job. I'm not sure why so many people have been griping about him.

Basically, state says jury could decide #MartinMacNeill drugged her, lured her to the tub and just let her drown. @fox13now #MacNeilltrial
