Anna Nicole Smith Drugs Case Awaits Jury's Verdict

A jury in the ANNA NICOLE SMITH drugs trial will soon give their verdict, after beginning deliberations. The case against Smith's two doctors and her boyfriend HOWARD K STERN has been running for nine weeks now, and the panel of six woman and six men retired to consider the testimony and arguments yesterday (12 October 2010), reports the Associated Press.
The decision that the jurors must now make is whether the defendants provided an excessive amount of drugs to the former Playboy model and actress, despite knowing that she was an addict. Defence lawyers have stressed that she was not an addict, and that the sedatives were simply for pain. Dr. Sandeep Kapoor and Dr Khristine Eroshevich, as well as Stern, have pleaded not guilty to the charges, however, they are not charged with Smith's death.
It was reported last month that the jury were shown over 90 photographs documenting the model's last few months. The images, some of which were taken by the defendant Stern, generally represent a happy time in Smith's life, beginning with the birth of her child in 2006, and finishing just weeks before she died. The 39-year-old was found dead in her room at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, in February 2007.
