University of Pittsburgh Medical Center
A defense attorney says a University of Pittsburgh medical researcher plans to waive extradition on charges of having fatally poisoned his neurologist wife with cyanide.
Shortly after Dr. Autumn Klein died, investigators knew it was due to cyanide poisoning. The question is, why.
Dr. Robert Ferrante, a prominent UPMC researcher, was arrested Thursday evening by state police in West Virginia after his car was stopped when police executed a rolling traffic stop.
The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center is the area’s largest health employer with more than 60,000 employees.
Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl is taking on UPMC and challenging the status that allows the regional medical giant to avoid tens of millions of dollars a year in local taxes.
