Nancy Grace will be covering the Dr. Martin MacNeill trial live, gavel-to-gavel, only on HLN. Watch Nancy live from Utah Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m. ET as testimony begins.
A judge said Wednesday that one of the prosecution’s toxicologists might not be allowed to testify at Dr. Martin MacNeill’s trial because the methods he used are not generally accepted by the scientific community.
The judge said he would reserve ruling on the admissibility of testimony by Douglas Rollins, a retired professor of pharmacology, but he told prosecutors they will need to elicit more foundation for Rollins' opinions if they want him to allow the testimony.
“That really hurts the state,” HLN's Nancy Grace said of the ruling.
Opening statements in the trial are scheduled for 10:30 a.m. ET Thursday.
