More charges against Anna Nicole's lawyer

September 23, 2009 10:21:43 AM PDT
Prosecutors have brought more charges against the lawyer-boyfriend of Anna Nicole Smith. The district attorney's office filed an amended complaint Wednesday in Los Angeles against Howard K. Stern, who is billed as an aider and abettor of two doctors charged with prescribing drugs that killed the former Playboy model in 2007.

The physicians and Stern pleaded not guilty in May to conspiring to illegally provide her with controlled substances.

The new charges against Stern include accusations he helped obtain prescriptions for opiates by using a false name. The doctors already face those charges.

Search warrant affidavits suggest Stern put his name on the prescriptions for drugs.
