More than two years after graduate Joey Rovero died in his sleep after taking a fatal cocktail of perscription drugs, a doctor has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with the 21-year-old's death.
Hsiu-Ying "Lisa" Tseng, 42, was taken into custody by investigators from the state's Medical Board and was scheduled to make her first appearance at the downtown Los Angeles courthouse Friday.
Along with the death of Rovero, Tseng is being charged with second-degree murder for two others: Vu Nguyen, 29, of Lake Forest and Steven Ogle, 25, of Palm Desert. All three deaths occurred in 2009.
