London, Oct 29 (ANI): Dr. Sandeep Kapoor of Indian-origin was found not guilty of conspiracy to provide prescription drugs to Anna Nicole Smith.

Nicole Smith was found dead in a Florida hotel room in February 2007

A jury has found late Playboy model Smith’s psychiatrist and boyfriend guilty of helping to give her excessive amounts of prescription drugs but has acquitted her doctor.

Khristine Eroshevich and Howard Stern were convicted of conspiracy charges, and Eroshevich was found guilty of fraud. Dr Kapoor was cleared.

All three had denied supplying Smith, 39, with the drugs, reports the BBC.

They were not charged over her death in 2007 from a prescription drug overdose.

At the trial in Los Angeles, the trio faced counts of conspiracy, excessive prescribing of opiates and sedatives to an addict and fraudulently obtaining drugs by using false names.

Eroshevich was convicted of conspiracy to provide Smith with drugs and unlawfully prescribing the painkiller Vicodin by fraud. Stern was convicted of two conspiracy counts of aiding and abetting.

The pair are due to be sentenced on 6 January. (ANI)
