RIO RANCHO, NM, Aug 20 ( – On Thursday, Georges Reding, the 74-year-old psychiatrist-  turned-“mercy killer”, was indicted on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of 54 year old Donna Brennan. An autopsy has revealed that in 1998 Brennan was killed with a lethal overdose. Reding’s lawyer is claiming that Brennan contacted his client for counselling only.  A conviction on the first-degree murder charge and the subsequent charges of practicing medicine without a license, trafficking in a controlled substance and evidence tampering,  would put Reding in prison for a longer period of time than his mentor Jack Kevorkian. Dr.  Death is serving 10-25 years on a second-degree murder conviction.
