LOS ANGELES (AP) — A nanny who worked for Anna Nicole Smith in the last months of her life says she saw the model’s boyfriend and psychiatrist take her into a bathroom where she found bloody syringes and other items.
Quethlie Alexie, who tended to Smith and her baby in the Bahamas, testified Tuesday in the drug conspiracy trial of Smith’s two doctors and boyfriend Howard K. Stern.
She testified that Smith was unable to walk or talk clearly after Stern and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich took her in the bathroom for medication. Alexie says she didn’t see what actually occurred, but prosecutors claim Smith was being injected with opiates and sedatives.
Stern, Eroshevich and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor have pleaded not guilty to drug conspiracy charges involving Smith. They are not charged with causing her 2007 overdose death.
