Pa. nurse seeks dismissal of assisted suicide case

Defense attorneys argue in a Schuylkill County Court petition that Mancini did nothing more than hand her father his morphine bottle at his request while he was in hospice care at his Pottsville home, The Philadelphia Inquirer (http://bit.ly/19c1VUZ ) reported. Mancini's attorneys say Yourshaw had end-stage diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and arthritis among other medical problems. More than 4,100 people have signed a petition sponsored by Compassion and Choices, an end-of-life advocacy group, urging prosecutors to drop the case.
