Jury Ends 6th Day Of Deliberation In Anna Nicole Drug Case
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The jury in the Anna Nicole Smith drug conspiracy trial has concluded its sixth day of deliberations without returning any verdicts in the complex case.
The panel wrapped up talks Tuesday as it worked to reach 21 separate decisions for the three defendants. In addition to finding the defendants guilty or not guilty, the panelists are required to answer a long list of questions if they find guilt on any of the conspiracy counts.
Jurors are being asked to decide whether Smith’s boyfriend-lawyer Howard K. Stern and Doctors Sandeep Kapoor and Khristine Eroshevich excessively provided opiates and sedatives to the former Playboy model and reality TV star.
They are not charged in connection with Smith’s 2007 overdose death.
