SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A juror in the murder trial of a Utah doctor says Martin MacNeill's heartless behavior in the aftermath of his wife's death suggested he left her to die in a bathtub.

Stuart Lewis tells the Deseret News (http://bit.ly/175pwYY ) there were too many circumstances pointing to MacNeill's guilt.

Lewis — one of eight jurors — says testimony clearly showed MacNeill over-medicated his wife.

His comments were echoed by a handful of other jurors interviewed by KSL and the Deseret News who offered only their first names. The jurors spoke for the first time publicly Wednesday, five days after they found MacNeill guilty of murder.

Jurors were less swayed by what they called the reluctant testimony of MacNeill's mistress or the explosive allegations of a handful of men who spent time with MacNeill behind bars.
