Michele MacNeill attends her last consultation before her face-lift procedure, according to Dr. Scott Thompson, her plastic surgeon. On the car ride there, Michele MacNeill expressed hesitations about having the surgery, according to her daughter, Alexis Somers.
"He [Martin MacNeill] got really angry at my mom and said, 'No you cannot do that. If you don’t have the surgery now you’re not getting it.' He was raising his voice and very animated and also said that he had already paid for the anesthesiologist and the operating suite," said Somers. "And he also said if we didn’t go through with the surgery, Dr. Thompson would be out a lot of money."
Thompson testified that it was Michele MacNeill’s’s domineering husband
who asked him to prescribe more medications than he normally would have, including the Valium, Percocet, Phenergan and Ambien that were found in her system the day she died.
"Martin indicated to me that he was very concerned about his wife, that she didn’t handle pain well, that she got very anxious and he was just concerned that she wouldn’t do well without having these other options available,” said Thompson.
