Kevorkian present at death of Parkinson's sufferer

Dr. Jack Kevorkian has apparently helped in another suicide, this time that of a Connecticut woman who suffered from Parkinson's disease.

Kevorkian's attorney, Geoffrey Fieger, said Kevorkian was present at the death of Muriel Clement, 76, North Branford, Conn. She suffered from an advanced form of Parkinson's, a debilitating disease, Fieger said.Kevorkian and another man delivered Clement's body to William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak Monday, hospital spokeswoman Colette Stimmell said.

Fieger said the second man was Dr. Georges Reding, a Galesburg psychiatrist who has been helping Kevorkian in assisted suicides.
