Doctor testifies that preexisting conditions killed 2 patients, not Legionnaires
FLINT, Mich .--Michigan Department of Health and Human Services director Nick Lyon back in court for the continuation of his preliminary exam.
Lyon is facing multiple charges including involuntary manslaughter.
Lyon's attorney called his first witness this Friday, a doctor from Beaumont Hospital.
Dr. Jeffery Band reviewed the cases of Robert Skidmore and John Snyder, who the prosecution claims died as a result of Legionnaire's Disease.
Band testified after reviewing the cases, he determined it was pre-existing conditions that killed the men, and Legionnaire’s did not contribute to either of their deaths.
Lyon will be back in court Monday, and Virginia Tech Professor Dr. Marc Edwards is expected to take the stand.
