MOUNT CARMEL, Pa.– A Pennsylvania doctor was indicted Thursday on 19 counts, including charges related to the deaths of five patients to whom he had prescribed opioids, according to the Department of Justice. It alleges that Dr. Raymond Kraynak caused the deaths between 2013 and 2015 by “unlawfully distributing and dispensing controlled substances” to the five.

Prosecutors also say Kraynak prescribed nearly 3 million doses of opioids from January 2016 through July.
