Lawyers for Anna Nicole Smith's attorney Howard K. Stern, psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich and medical internist Sandeep Kapoor will face a judge in a Los Angeles courtroom Thursday morning in hopes of getting the conspiracy charges dimissed against the three defendants in connection with Smith's death from an accidental drug overdose, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Stern, Eroshevich and Kapoor are accused of conspiring to illegally provide Smith with sedatives and opiates prior to her February 2007 death. All three have pleaded not guilty to the felony charges, and have been ordered to stand trial starting on August 4.
This past February, Stern told RadarOnline.com that he's eager return to court and get the trial started so he can be fully vindicated, and that he's looking forward to cross examination, where he says the prosecution's witnesses will be exposed as liars.
The three defendants are not charged with causing her death.
