Doctor Accused in Overdose Deaths Pleads Not Guilt
Dr. Hsiu-Ying "Lisa" Tseng, 42, of Rowland Heights pleaded not guilty to three counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of three young men in California. Tseng, is accused of prescribing narcotics and other addictive drugs in a reckless manner to the men over a period of time.
A judge found there was enough evidence to proceed to trial after a three week preliminary hearing. Tseng, has new attorneys on her defense team, defending against LA County's first prosecution of a physician for murder in a prescription drug. Prosecutors face challenges in that the victims all sought out prescription drugs for apparent medical issues.
Tseng, is being held in custody on $3 million bail.
