London, Mar 26 (ANI): Prosecutors in Florida are taking a new look at the 2007 death of Anna Nicole Smith.

It has emerged that Broward County prosecutors recently met with authorities in Los Angeles and the California Department of Justice.

The move follows the indictment March 13 in California of Smith’s former boyfriend Howard K. Stern and two doctors in connection with her death, reports Sky News.

Smith was found unconscious in her room at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino near Hollywood, Florida, in February 2007.

Medics tried to revive her but failed.

A post-mortem found she died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs including anti-depressants.

The case’s detectives found several prescriptions for drugs - in both Smith’s and 40-year-old Stern’s names - in her hotel room.

Stern, a lawyer, and doctors Sandeep Kapoor and Khristine Eroshevich are accused of conspiring to supply her with drugs from June 2004 to January 2007. (ANI)
