Howard K Stern, the former lover and lawyer of Anna Nicole Smith has been found guilty by a jury of his peers. Smith was found guilty of two counts of conspiracy after the jury ruled that he provided medication to Smith which eventually led to her death.
The trial wasn’t a total loss for Stern who was acquitted of seven other charges. Also found guilt with Stern was Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, Anna Nicole’s psychiatrist.
Not charged with anything was Dr. Sandeep Kapoor who was acquitted on all six charges brought against him, including two conspiracy charges.
In 2007 Anna Nicole Smith died in a South Florida hotel room, after her death it was discovered that she had used various names to obtain prescription drugs from several different doctors.
The verdicts took 13 days to deliberate with nearly 58 hours of talk among jurors.
Sentencing has been scheduled for January 6th, 2011.
