INDICE DE GALERIAS
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A judge has declined to dismiss charges against a Des Moines doctor accused of prescribing painkillers to patients who allegedly died of overdoses.
Polk County District Associate Judge Gregory Brandt said in a ruling Monday that there's enough evidence to move ahead with the case against Dr. Daniel Baldi, who faces 10 counts of involuntary manslaughter.
Prosecutors say Baldi prescribed large amounts of narcotic painkillers to patients including Paul Gray, founder of the band Slipknot, who died in 2010.
Baldi's attorneys argued some patients had no medication prescribed by Baldi in their systems when they died. They say others had amounts of the drugs at or below therapeutic levels, while others failed to use them as prescribed.
The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/16sVcUP ) the trial is scheduled for Dec. 2.
