A defense attorney says he will file an appeal of a Nevada state judge’s decision to let a murder charge stand against former nurse anesthetist Ronald Lakeman according to My News 3.

Lakeman and former las Vegas physician and clinic owner Dipak Desai face criminal charges stemming from a 2007 hepatitis C outbreak.

Attorney Frederick Santacroce said Friday he’ll tell the Nevada Supreme Court that former nurse anesthetist Ronald Lakeman had nothing to do with outpatient procedures that prosecutors say led to the death last April of Rodolfo Meana in the Philippines.
