Woman to stand trial in assisted suicide case
A woman -- who's also a nurse -- is heading to trial for the alleged assisted suicide of her father.
All charges against Barbara Mancini were held for court during her preliminary hearing today in Schuylkill County.
Investigators say Mancini gave morphine to her father, 93-year-old Joe Yourshaw, in Pottsville in February.
Yourshaw was in hospice care, and was already dying.
Mancini told police that Yourshaw said he wanted to end his life.
Yourshaw died after a few days in the hospital.
