L’ORIGNAL, Ont.—The case of an eastern Ontario doctor charged with murder in the death of a man at the hospital where he worked returns to court today.

Dr. Brian Nadler, 35, has been charged with one count of first-degree murder.

Police have accused Nadler in the March 25 death of 89-year-old Albert Poidinger, who lived in Point-Claire, Que.

Nadler was arrested at the Hawkesbury and District General Hospital that same day.

Provincial police are also investigating the doctor in connection with several other suspicious deaths at the hospital, though they have not revealed how many.

Nadler’s lawyer says his client maintains his innocence.
