NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A woman described how she found her boyfriend dead, in testimony at the Manhattan trial of Dr. Stan Li – who is accused of manslaughter in the death of two drug-addicted patients.
As WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell reported, the patients who died both bought oxycodone at Li’s clinic in Flushing, Queens. One of the patients was Nicholas Rappold, 21, who had been a high school athlete.
His girlfriend, Aura Hernandez, testified that she was with him the night he died. They had been driving around Queens, both of them getting high and popping pills – Xanax and oxycodone – and smoking marijuana.
