COLUMBUS, Ohio — Despite being found innocent of murder charges related to multiple patient deaths, former doctor William Husel determined practicing medicine again in Ohio would be impossible following a years-long ordeal and surrendered his medical license, his attorney said.

A jury found Husel, 46, not guilty in late April after being charged with the deaths of 14 people, claiming the former Mount Carmel doctor ordered excessive doses of fentanyl.
