Howard K. Stern and doctors Khristine Eroshevich, Sandeep Kapoor will be going to trial for a long list of felonies relating to the death of Anna Nicole Smith. The doctors are accused of supplying Stern with the drugs he needed to keep Anna Nicole in the haze that she was in up until the time that she eventually overdosed.
Stern alone is responsible for over 11 felony accounts, including giving prescription drugs to an addict, acquiring those drugs illegally and fraud. Kapoor is also screwed. During the previous investigation, the following passage was found in his journal, “I was making out with Anna, my patient, blurring the lines … I gave her methadone, Valium. Can she ruin me?”
The death of Anna Nicole has always stood out to me as incredibly sad because it was clear that in her messed up state, Anna had been allowing a lot of people to take advantage of her for a long time. Stern, who many saw on Anna Nicole’s E! reality show had been with her for a long time and even when she was top dog in the relationship, he often seemed both manipulative and emotionally abusive toward her. Their relationship was never appropriate, and when he saw that he could possibly gain control of her estate if she was dead, well, it wouldn’t surprise me if he turns up to be guilty on most of those charges.
