Slipknot: Paul Gray's Doctor Cleared of Manslaughter Charges

(Classic Rock) The doctor who prescribed drugs to Slipknot bassist Paul Gray was not responsible for his manslaughter, a court has ruled. Daniel Baldi was yesterday acquitted of seven charges relating to the deaths of patients, including Gray, who died in 2010 after losing his battle against addiction.

Jurors at Polk Country District Court, Iowa, came to their verdict after two days, in what's believed to have been the first trial of its kind in the US state. They decided there was insufficient evidence to suggest Baldi should have known a death was likely as a result of his actions.

One juror told the Des Moine Register: "I didn't understand why he was on trial - I was waiting for a smoking gun of some sort. It never appeared." A patient of Baldi's who attended the full trial to show her support said: "I could think of no other place to be - he has always offered me so much kindness and compassion." more on this story
