HAYSVILLE, Kan. (AP) _ U.S. Marshals have seized a Wichita-area
clinic linked to 59 overdose deaths.

A court order authorized the marshals to secure the clinic of Dr. Stephen Schneider. Yesterday, they changed the locks and placed
``No Trespassing'' stickers on the doors.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot ordered the sale of the Haysville clinic earlier this month.

In his ruling, Belot notes that the mortgage is in default and real estate taxes have not been paid on the vacant building.

He ordered the U.S. Marshall's Service to sell the property for the highest value possible.

Schneider and his wife, nurse Linda Schneider are awaiting trial on charges of running a ``pill mill.'' They are accused of directly causing four deaths and contributing to 21 others.
