Doctor Guilty in AIDS Injection Case

October 24, 1998|From Times Wire Reports

A doctor was convicted of attempted second-degree murder for injecting his former lover with blood from an AIDS patient, infecting her with the virus that causes the disease. A jury found Dr. Richard Schmidt guilty of walking into Janice Allen's darkened apartment on Aug. 4, 1994, and injected her with the tainted blood. Schmidt, 52, faces life in prison. Prosecutors said Schmidt injected her after Allen, 34, told him that their relationship was over after 10 years.
