LOS ANGELES (AP) - The prosecution and defense have rested their cases in the drug conspiracy trial against Anna Nicole’s boyfriend and two doctors.

Deputy District Attorney David Barkhurst questioned the prosecution’s last witness Monday in Los Angeles, wrapping up seven weeks of testimony from medical experts and acquaintances of the former Playboy model.

Defense attorneys rested their case without calling any witnesses.

Howard K. Stern, Dr. Sandeep Kapoor and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich have pleaded not guilty to conspiring to provide excessive opiates and sedatives to Smith, who is described in the charges as an addict. They are not charged in her 2007 drug overdose death in Florida.
