HOFMANN IS FAIR AS BILLS MOUNT

SHARE HOFMANN IS FAIR AS BILLS MOUNT

Convicted killer Mark W. Hofmann remained in fair condition Wednesday in University Hospital as he steadily improved from an overdose of anti-depressants, a nursing supervisor said.

Hofmann was found comatose in his prison cell Thursday afternoon, apparently the result of a self-inflicted drug overdose. Hofmann was then air-lifted to University Hospital in critical condition.Since then, Hofmann's hospital bills continue to mount at the rate of about $2,000 a day, said hospital spokesman John Dwan.

The Department of Corrections contracts with the hospital to provide medical services for a set yearly fee. Hofmann's expenses will be paid under the terms of that contract.
