LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- The criminal prosecution for the largest outbreak of Hepatitis C in Las Vegas is nearing its conclusion.
Dr. Dipak Desai and former nurse anesthetist Ronald Lakeman face more than two dozen charges, including murder.
Closing arguments are scheduled Thursday after seven weeks of testimony and more than 70 witnesses.
After that, it'll be up to a jury to decide the fate of former endoscopy center owner Dipak Desai and nurse anesthetist Ronald Lakeman.
The two men area accused of putting profits over patient safety so much that seven people became infected with incurable liver disease at Desai clinics in Las Vegas.
The murder charge stems from the death of one patient, 77-year-old Rodolfo Meana.
Jurors have been told Meana died last year after contracting hepatitis C during a colonoscopy in 2007.
