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.
