WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A federal judge is delaying the evidentiary hearing for a Kansas nurse accused of running a "pill mill'' with her husband.
Prosecutors are seeking the continued detention of nurse Linda
Schneider. On Wednesday, Magistrate Judge Donald Bostwick granted a
defense request for an extension of a hearing on prosecutors'
claims that she is a flight risk. That hearing is now set for July
17. The hearing had been set for Thursday.
Schneider and her husband, Dr. Stephen Schneider, were arrested in December on a 34-count federal indictment that accuses them of directly causing four deaths and contributing to the deaths of 11 other patients.
The doctor was released in April pending his trial.
