14 Arrested in Deadly 2012 Meningitis Outbreak
BOSTON, MASS. - More than a dozen people have been indicted in the deadly 2012 meningitis outbreak.
Officials say it started at a pharmacy compounding center in Massachusetts.
The outbreak sickened more than 750 people nationwide. Sixty-four people died.
Authorities say the outbreak was caused by tainted vials of a back pain medication.
Investigators say the company's so-called "clean" rooms were filthy.
They say employees falsified prescriptions with false names like Big Baby Jesus, Roy Rogers, Wonderwoman and Bud Weiser.
The company's co-founder and head pharmacist face the most serious charges of murder. If convicted, they face life in prison.
