(SALT LAKE CITY, Utah) - John Brickman Wall, a Salt Lake City pediatrician awaiting trial on murder in his ex-wife's death, appeared in court Friday, May 9, 2014, in Salt Lake City. A Salt Lake City police officer says the pediatrician accused of killing his ex-wife seemed surprised that he was not arrested the night her body was found. Walls attorney Fred Metos argues his client's statements to police should not be allowed at an upcoming murder trial because they were made under "psychological and physical coercion" by the detectives. A judge is not expected to rule on the statements until additional police testimony can be heard next week. Wall has pleaded not guilty to murder. No trial date has been set.
