Howard K. Stern And Doctors Face Charges In Anna Nicole Case

Anna Nicole Smith's former boyfriend and two doctors have been charged with conspiracy to furnish drugs to the former Playboy playmate before she died of an overdose in 2007.

Prosecutors say Smith's former boyfriend and attorney, Howard K. Stern, and doctors Sandeep Kapoor and Khristine Eroshevich were charged Thursday with three felony counts of conspiracy in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Los Angeles County District Attorney spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons says the three also were charged with other felonies including obtaining fraudulent prescriptions and unlawfully prescribing a controlled substance between June 2004 and January 2007, just two weeks before Smith's death.

It was not immediately clear if the defendants had retained attorneys.

    They should have investigated Stern while she was alive, but only a silly bigfruitybasket would excuse him just because she is dead.

    I have said from day one that Stern was in charge of getting her drugs.He wanted her dead so he could recieve her money.I followed the whole child custody case and it was basically proven then.
