DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The case against a Des Moines doctor facing seven counts of involuntary manslaughter has gone to the jury.

Prosecuting and defense lawyers completed their closing arguments on Tuesday, leaving jurors to decide whether Dr. Daniel Baldi is guilty.

Prosecutors have said Baldi prescribed large amounts of narcotic painkillers to patients including Paul Gray, founder of the band Slipknot, who died in 2010.

Baldi’s lawyers say his patients either took more of their medications than prescribed or took other drugs along with them.
