PROVO, Utah (AP) — A sentencing hearing has been postponed in a sexual abuse case filed against a Utah doctor who was also convicted of killing his wife.
Martin MacNeill’s sentencing was rescheduled for Sept. 15, court records show. He faces up to 15 years in prison after a jury convicted him of forcible sexual abuse.
Prosecutors said MacNeill abused his adult daughter in 2007, one month after his wife was found dead.
MacNeill was convicted in November 2013 of murder in his wife’s death. Prosecutors said he drugged his wife and left her to die in a bathtub. He is still waiting to be sentenced in the murder case.
The Associated Press doesn’t normally identify alleged victims of sexual crimes but the adult daughter asked to be identified in this case.
