A former doctor at an Arkansas Veterans Affairs hospital who was accused of being intoxicated at work was indicted on multiple charges, including involuntary manslaughter after three patients who he misdiagnosed died of cancer.

The article goes on to state the following:

According to authorities, Levy caused the deaths of three patients at the Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks in Fayetteville by entering misleading or incorrect diagnoses.
