Benoit's doctor charged with improperly dispensing painkillers, other drugs

PicbenoitUPDATE: If you're following Benoit developments, I think this version of the story is a little more informative.

It's still not clear which, if any of them, longtime WWE wrestler Chris Benoit was taking when he killed his family, then himself, last month.
The seven-count indictment lists drugs like Percocet, Xanax, Lorcet and Vicoprofen. Supposedly an additional criminal complaint involves steroids, too, but that document is sealed.
The doctor, Phil Astin, was supposed to make an initial court appearance Monday afternoon.
