LOS ANGELES (AP) - A key witness at the Anna Nicole Smith drug
conspiracy trial has retracted a previous statement that she saw
Smith's boyfriend Howard K. Stern inject the former Playboy model.

Quethlie Alexie, who worked as a nanny for Smith in the Bahamas,
acknowledged Friday under tough cross-examination in Los Angeles
that she signed an affidavit saying she saw Stern, a defendant in
the case, inject Smith with a white substance.

However, Alexie retracted that claim and a number of other
statements.

Stern, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor have
pleaded not guilty to multiple charges, including providing Smith
with excessive opiates and sedatives.

They are not charged with her drug overdose death in 2007.
