DRUG DEATHS: Pre-Trial Hearing For Doctor
Dr. Daniel Baldi was in court for a pretrial conference Friday morning.
It’s the last step before he goes to trial on for allegedly recklessly prescribing painkillers to ten patients who later died. One of those patients was Slipknot bassist Paul Gray.
Baldi’s attorney has also made a second motion to dismiss all charges. He says four deaths weren’t caused by drugs Baldi prescribed and in the other cases patients were taking medications with therapeutic levels.
A judge denied the first motion to dismiss the charges last month.
Baldi’s trial is currently set to begin December 2nd.
