A suicide machine sits like a trophy in Geoffrey Fieger's office, along with a wall of photos of him and his star client, Dr. Jack Kevorkian. The 42-year-old lawyer used to take the machine on speaking engagements to show how Kevorkian helped people die. Then he decided that was too sensational. Too sensational? For a guy who pinned a red clown nose on a picture of a Kevorkian prosecutor during a news conference?

Dr. Jack Kevorkian repeatedly asked two women who sought his help committing suicide if they wanted to reconsider, even in the hours before they died, say lawyers representing both the doctor and the women's families. Kevorkian also asked Sherry Miller three times whether she still wanted to die after Miller watched Marjorie Wantz use a machine that Kevorkian devised so she could give herself a lethal injection, the Detroit News reported Sunday.
