THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ The sister of Anna Nicole Smith’s lawyer-boyfriend testified at his drug conspiracy case trial Thursday, professing a lack of memory of shipments of prescription medications to him in the Bahamas.
Bonnie Stern, testifying under a grant of immunity from prosecution, identified e-mails between herself and Smith, who was requesting the shipments. But she said she couldn’t remember having the items sent to Smith or her brother, Howard K. Stern.
In one e-mail, she wrote she “gave Chris everything” from a doctor in Beverly Hills to bring to Smith. She acknowledged the reference was to defendant Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, but said she didn’t remember giving the doctor anything, mostly because she was overwhelmed at the time by two businesses she was overseeing.
Howard K. Stern, Eroshevich and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor have pleaded not guilty to conspiring to unlawfully provide excessive drugs to Smith, prescribing to an addict and obtaining false prescriptions involving the use of fake names. They are not charged with causing her overdose death in 2007.
Prosecutors objected but the judge allowed the answer.
“She was his everything,” she said. “I only wish I would meet someone that loved me as much as he loved her.”
