  • Howard K. Stern, the ex-boyfriend and former lawyer for deceased former Playboy Playmate Anna Nicole Smith (born Vickie Lynne Marshall) was charged with multiple felonies alleging that he conspired with two doctors over more than 2 ½ years to illegally provide her with prescription narcotics. Smith died of an accidental drug overdose in Florida on February 8, 2007.

    Along with Stern, California physicians Sandeep Kapoor and Khristine Eroshevich are accused of "prescribing, administering and dispensing a controlled substance to an addict," using a false name or address to obtain a controlled substance, and related charges.

    All three are accused of having "acted with knowledge that Anna Nicole Smith was an addict."

    Among the drugs that they are accused of prescribing or obtaining for Smith are Ambien, hyrdromorphone (trade name: Dilaudid), methadone, Xanax, clonazepam, the muscle relaxant carisoprodol, and the sedative chloral hydrate.
