Doctor Scott Van Wagoner testified Wednesday that Michele MacNeill was dead when emergency personnel brought her to the a hospital, but he said Martin MacNeill made an unusual request.

“He made an odd request of me, which I still find to be in 15 years of practice completely unusual and really kind of off the wall… He offered me $10,000 to continue my resuscitation and not quit,” Van Wagoner testified.

Van Wagoner said of all the requests he’s ever received as a physician, this one was the most odd.

The trial will resume Thursday, and it is anticipated that Martin MacNeill’s family will testify.
