Medical records...coming to a court near you soon? BD
BRENTWOOD, N.H. - A judge has ordered a former top official with the state medical examiner's office to submit to a physical exam and sign over medical records to settle a debate between prosecutors and her lawyer over whether she's too sick to face trial.
Judge Tina Nadeau handed down the order following a meeting last week when prosecutors called for a more detailed account of Kathrine Wieder's physical and mental well-being, according to a decision made public yesterday.
Wieder, who worked as the state's chief forensic investigator, faces 44 charges alleging she abused her position at the medical examiner's office to increase her wages by signing cremation certificates.
Adams has already interviewed Wieder once and has asked for a detailed list of her medications, as well as details of her medical and health records.
