 FILE - In this Aug. 27, 2012 file photo, family members hold up photos of Michele MacNeill facing Martin MacNeill, not shown, as he enters the courtroom in Provo, Utah. The Utah doctor convicted of killing his wife was sentenced to one to 15 years in prison in a separate sexual abuse case. He is facing up to life in prison at a sentencing hearing scheduled for Friday, Sept. 18, 2014. MacNeill was found guilty of giving his wife Michelle drugs prescribed after cosmetic surgery and leaving her to drown in the bathtub of their home in 2007 so he could begin a new life with his mistress. The long-awaiting sentencing comes after a Provo judge denied a request for a new trial.  (AP Photo/The Deseret News, Scott G Winterton, Pool, File)
