Doctor accused of killing wife with boat returns to court

Attorneys for a Central Kentucky doctor accused of killing his wife asked a judge Wednesday to throw out some of the interviews he gave to police after the incident.

Steven Hall's attorney wanted some statements he gave to police shortly following his wife Isabel's death to be considered involuntary.

Hall's defense claims he was too much in shock at the time to be giving interviews to police.

Detectives claimed they should be allowed, because Hall was read his Miranda rights and showed no visible signs of shock.

The judge sided with prosecutors, ruling the interviews will be considered voluntary.

Police say Hall and his wife, Isabel, were celebrating their anniversary on Herrington Lake back in May, when Hall pushed his wife overboard, and then ran over her.

The Harrodsburg doctor claims he didn't mean to hit his wife, he only meant to scare her.
