Snippet from the article:

A former Southern California cosmetic surgeon has been charged with involuntary manslaughter after allegedly giving a deadly cocktail of drugs during a liposuction procedure, authorities said.

Ehab Aly Mohamed, 46, was also charged with elder abuse in a separate incident involving a different patient. Mohamed is already jailed on previous burglary and forgery convictions, according to a Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office statement.

Mohamed pleaded not guilty Wednesday to all charges and denied any and all special circumstances, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 6.

Mohamed’s involuntary manslaughter stems from the Aug. 21, 2010 death of Sharon Carpenter. Carpenter, 61, died in Mohamed’s Encino office after a 10-hour liposuction procedure..
