(CNN)The trial of a Columbus, Ohio, doctor accused of overprescribing pain medication to multiple patients near death began Tuesday.

Dr. William Husel was initially indicted on 25 counts of murder in 2019. He is now facing 14 counts after Franklin County Judge Michael Holbrook granted the prosecution's motion to dismiss 11 counts in January, according to CNN affiliate WBNS-TV.
