Jury deliberates again today in murder case of doctor accused of overprescribing fentanyl to the dying


(CNN)A jury deliberating the legal fate of an Ohio doctor accused of overprescribing the powerful opioid fentanyl to patients near death will continue its work for a third day on Thursday.

Dr. William Husel has pleaded not guilty to 14 counts of first-degree murder. The state charges are related to the allegations he prescribed fentanyl in doses "designed to hasten the death of the patients that were being treated," prosecutors said when Husel was indicted in June 2019.
