Anna Nicole Smith
Anna Nicole Smith's former lover and attorney Howard K. Stern was in court today. Could he be charged with Anna Nicole's death?
That's true! But he didn't enter a plea as his arraignment was postponed until May 13. Meanwhile, the investigation into Anna Nicole's death continues, with Stern and Anna's former psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich facing serious charges.
TV judge Jeanine Pirro says Stern probably won't face murder charges, but manslaughter is a distinct possibility. Pirro tells "Extra," "The administration of drugs might have been done so in such a manner that it was reckless -- that it was in disregard of her life and therefore was a lesser homicide."
The continuing legal saga of all things Anna Nicole continues. She died February 8, 2007.
Anna Nicole Smith's former attorney/boyfriend and two doctors have been charged with conspiracy to furnish drugs to the former Playboy playmate who died of an overdose in 2007.
Howard K. Stern and doctors Sandeep Kapoor and Khristine Eroshevich were charged Thursday with three felony counts of conspiracy in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Police records show Stern was arrested and booked by police in Whittier, Calif., with bail set for $20,000,
Los Angeles County District Attorney spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons says the three defendants were variously charged with eight other felonies, including obtaining fraudulent prescriptions and unlawfully prescribing a controlled substance between June 2004 and January 2007.
In September 2006, just after Anna's son Daniel died of an overdose, she and Stern exchanged vows and rings in an informal commitment ceremony in the Bahamas. Stern, 40, claimed to be the father of Anna's daughter Dannielynn. After testing, a judge ruled Smith's ex Larry Birkhead was the father.
Smith died at age 39 in February 2007 from a combination of prescription drugs.
Larry Birkhead wants 20-month-old daughter Dannielynn to know her mother's history. He forked over nearly $3,000 for Anna Nicole Smith's lingerie at an auction held at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas on Saturday, according to Us Weekly.
Birkhead bid $1,800 for a pink bustier and $1,000 for a white negligee Anna wore in a Playboy shoot, saying, "I have a lot of history I have to put together that Dannielynn doesn't really know about," he told AP, adding, "Playboy was such a big part of Anna's career."
He won't be giving the lingerie to his baby girl just yet. Keep Reading...
