Boston Globe: Ex-doctor enters plea in abortion fatality:
Rapin Osathanondh was arraigned yesterday in Barnstable Superior Court and released on personal recognizance after surrendering his passport.
Osathanondh, 65, was indicted last week in the death of Laura Hope Smith, 22, of Sandwich.
Prosecutors say Smith's heart stopped last September while she was under anesthesia at Osathanondh's Hyannis office. They allege willful, reckless conduct by the former doctor.
