The Flushing doctor accused of fatally overdosing two patients will go on trial Friday morning in Manhattan Supreme Court.
Stan Xuhui Li, a New Jersey anesthesiologist, was indicted on manslaughter charges in 2012 for illegally prescribing highly addictive painkillers to 20 patients and causing the deaths of Joseph Haeg, 37, and Nicholas Rappold, 21.
Li is charged with a total of 219 counts. He has pleaded not guilty.
He operated a popular weekend pain clinic, Medical Pain Management, in a Flushing basement at 132-59 41st Rd.
