In Wichita, a former doctor named Stephen Schneider is on trial for allegedly overprescribing painkillers, which authorities say led to the deaths of 68 people. (His wife faces similar charges.) His Haysville practice was raided by federal agents back in 2005, the Eagle reports. Schneider is the defense's first witness:
... Schneider said he would not have prescribed narcotics to any patient if he thought it would harm them.
Schneider said he trusted his patients to follow their treatment regimens and his directions for taking the drugs.
"I believed in them," Schneider said.
