Anna Nicole Smith doctors, companion ordered by judge to stand trial

Posted on

A Superior Court judge in Los Angeles today ordered two of Anna Nicole Smith doctors and her longtime companion Howard Stern to stand trial on charges of conspiring to illegally furnish the late Anna Nicole Smith with prescription drugs, reports the Los Angeles Times. Arraignment has been set for Dec. 11 and will be overseen by another judge. The 39-year-old supermodel died in 2007 from an overdose of a sedative and other drugs at a hospital in Florida, near the Seminole Hard Rock Casino, where she had been staying. A medical examiner ruled her death an accident. A multi-agency task force spent two years investigating how she obtained opiates, sedatives and other drugs before her death.
