The government convinced a U-S Magistrate to ban Knox from writing prescriptions, pending trial... and the court ordered him to refer all his patients to other doctors. Knox is charged with health- care fraud, setting up a kick-back scheme and illegally prescribing narcotics.

[SUPER=03-Houston, TX]


Yesterday, the jury heard testimony from a Houston Medical examiner who showed a diagram from the autopsy of the oldest child.
According to the autopsy, the 7- year old boy suffered bruises on his head, arms, legs and chest. The doctor says the boy sustained some of those injuries while Yates held him under water.
Prosecutors hope to demonstrate how the children struggled in the tub giving Yates time to consider her actions and stop the killings.
The defense has started mounting its insanity defense.
The psychiatrist who treated Yates in jail quotes her as saying, her children had to die to be saved because they weren't righteous.
If convicted Yates could get the death penalty.

((Daniel Pearl's body has not been found.. and it remains unclear when his execution style killing took place. Political reaction to Pearl's death has been swift and stern. President Bush took time out from his official visit to China to condemn the murder and said it would only strengthen the United States' resolve to combat terrorism.

SOT: George W. Bush

"Those who would threaten Americans, those who would engage in criminal barbaric acts need to know that these crimes only hurt their cause."
The Wall Street Journalist was kidnapped by Islamic extremists in the southern Pakistan city of Karachi back in January. His captors emailed photos of Pearl along with their demands for a ransom and the release of Taliban and Al Qaida prisoners...saying Pearl would be executed if the demands were not met. A video tape of his murder was delivered to authorities.

SOT: Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf

"If the objective of these terrorists or those who perperpetrated this murder wants us to move away from our resolve, let me tell them that they are sadly mistaken."
Stand UP: Pearl is the 9th journalist to be killed since the start of the war in Afghanistan. Police have rounded up a group of suspects including Sheikh Oamar Saeed, an Islamic militant who has already admitted to a role in Pearls' kidnapping. He is scheduled to appear in court for a hearing next week.))
