Two Tennessee Doctors Plead Not Guilty

Two Tennessee doctors plead not guilty to illegally prescribing painkillers to people in Harlan County.

Doctors Visu Vilvarajah and Miriella Lalanne are each charged with engaging in organized crime, second degree assault and wanton endangerment.

Vilvarajah is being held on five-million dollars bond.

Lalanne's bond is set at one million dollars because she has no prior criminal history.

Officials say the bond amounts are so high because both are considered flight risks.

Vilvarajah served five years of a 20-year sentence for the 1986 murders of his then wife and mother-in-law.
