DRUG DEATHS: Doctor’s Trial Beginning
Jury selection is scheduled to get underway Monday, in the trial of a Des Moines doctor charged with ten counts of involuntary manslaughter.
Dr. Daniel Baldi’s trail has been pushed back several times. It was originally set for December, then rescheduled for February, before being moved again to this month.
Baldi is accused of recklessly prescribing painkillers to ten patients who later died. One of those patients was Slipknot bassist Paul Grey.
Baldi’s trial is the first of its kind in Iowa.
