Anna Nicole Smith's psychiatrist arrested for prescribing drugs which killed her.

Anna Nicole Smith's psychiatrist, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, turns herself in to police to face charges on over prescribing drugs that contributed to Smith's overdose which caused her death.

From the Huffington Post:

Psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich surrendered Monday to face charges of excessively prescribing drugs to Anna Nicole Smith before the former model's overdose death at 39.

Eroshevich turned herself in at the Van Nuys police station, said police spokeswoman Rosario Herrera.

She was released several hours later after posting $20,000 bail, according to a statement from her attorney Adam Braun's office.

After a lengthy investigation by the attorney general and other state and federal agencies, Los Angeles County prosecutors charged Eroshevich last week with conspiring with another doctor, Sandeep Kapoor, and Smith's lawyer-turned-boyfriend Howard K. Stern to provide Smith with thousands of prescription pills.
