Anna Guy believes the jury at her estranged husband Ewen Macdonald’s trial on the charge of murdering her brother should have known about all his other charges.

The jury, who found Macdonald not guilty of killing Scott Guy in July last year, were unaware of his six other charges, including killing calves, burning down a hut and destroying a vat of milk, as the charges were suppressed.

They were, however, informed of Macdonald and former farmhand Callum Boe poaching deer and destroying property on Scott and his wife Kylee Guy's side of the farm.

"I think someone's history does make up a lot of that person," Anna told 3rd Degree hosts Guyon Espiner and Duncan Garner.

The hosts of the current affairs show, which debuted on TV3 tonight, also asked Anna if she believed her husband had committed her brother's murder.

She said she did not know: "I've had so many sleepless nights, tossing and turning thinking 'Yes, oh my gosh, this is it' and 'No, there's no way' and just going round and round in circles. I'll never know."

She also declined to answer the question of whether her mother believed Macdonald had killed Scott.

Prior to the interview with Espiner and Garner, the programme featured a special report on Anna's life, as she left her home town of Feilding to move to Auckland.
