A judge in Los Angeles Monday threatened to arrest Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, one of three defendants charged in connection with the death of Anna Nicole Smith, after Kapoor failed to show up at a court hearing earlier Monday morning.

According to his attorney, Kapoor, 40, was missing because of a medical emergency to one of his patients, who is in hospice. The judge declared that reason unacceptable, and ordered an arrest warrant to be issued for him should he not show up at the Los Angeles court by 11:00 A.M. PST Monday.

At that same hearing, the judge also set a preliminary date of August 12 for the two other defendants in the case: Smith's former boyfriend/attorney  Howard K. Stern and  61-year-old Dr. Kristine Eroshevich.

All three defendants are accused of suppling a variety of prescription drugs to Smith which allegedly led to the reality star's 2007 death.

Eroshevich received the same preliminary date as Stern.

The judge is expected on August 12th to decide whether or not there is enough evidence to move the issue to trial.
