A pain management doctor in Pinellas Park is facing the possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison after three people died because he prescribed them drugs they didn’t need, the Tampa Bay Times reports. 
 
Dr. Edward Neil Feldman was arrested Tuesday and charged in three counts tied to the deaths. He and his wife, Kim Xuan Feldman, are also being charged with five counts related to drug conspiracy, money laundering, and other illegal financial transactions, according to the Times.
