Manslaughter Decision on Children's Doctor
Prosecutors will on Monday decide whether or not to press ahead with charges of manslaughter against a doctor at Stockholm's leading children's hospital.
The case involves a lengthy investigation at the Astrid Lindgren hospital where the experienced female physician was arrested in March last year accused of causing the death of a brain damaged baby girl the previous September in a so called "mercy killing.
Police had been following up questions raised in the coroner's report which showed excessive levels of morphine and an anaesthetic in the baby's blood stream. In October last year, after its own investigation, Sweden's National Board of Health and Welfare cleared the doctor of any wrongdoing.
