Witness’ brother testifies in MacDonald hearing

WILMINGTON, NC (AP) — The brother of a deceased witness in the murders of the family of former Green Beret doctor Jeffrey MacDonald is testifying that his sister said she was in the MacDonald home the morning of the killings.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Eugene Stoeckley testified Tuesday in US District Court in Wilmington. He said his mother told him that his sister, Helena Stoeckley, was in the home at Fort Bragg when the family was killed.

MacDonald’s pregnant wife and two young daughters were killed Feb 17, 1970. He was convicted in 1979.

Stoeckley told several people she was in the MacDonald home, but testified she didn’t remember where she was.

MacDonald said intruders killed his family. He wants a judge to order a new trial based on new evidence.
