Mary Britt, ex-wife of Jimmy Britt, a deputy U.S. marshal when the case was originally tried, leaves the Federal Courthouse in Wilmington, North Carolina, Monday, September 17, 2012 after testifying. Britt, who has since died, gave a statement to defense attorneys in 2005 that he heard prosecutor Jim Blackburn threaten Helena Stoeckley, a troubled local woman whom MacDonald had identified as one of the attackers. Jeffrey MacDonald, a former Fort Bragg Army officers and doctor, was convicted in 1979 of murdering his wife and two young daughters in 1970. The hearing could determine whether MacDonald could receive a new trial, decades after he was convicted of killing his family. (Chuck Liddy/Raleigh News & Observer/MCT via Getty Images)
