Doctors 'wrongly gave Smith drugs'

A Los Angeles prosecutor has claimed two doctors prescribed massive amounts of drugs to Anna Nicole Smith even though they were warned she was addicted to painkillers.

The claim came during opening statements in the trial of Dr Sandeep Kapoor, Dr Khristine Eroshevich and Smith's lawyer-boyfriend Howard K Stern.

All three pleaded not guilty to conspiracy. They are not charged with the former Playboy model's drug overdose death in 2007.

The prosecutor, Renee Rose, showed jurors pictures of prescriptions for hundreds of pills, including the powerful drugs methadone and Dilaudid.

Ms Rose claims that with Stern's connivance, doctors filled prescriptions for Smith under several names.

They also allegedly approved drugs when she was pregnant.
