New charges against Michigan doctor

ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. — A grand jury has indicted a Michigan doctor on more than a dozen new charges. The doctor is accused of misdiagnosing his patients on purpose.

A grand jury is now charging Dr. Farid Fata with conspiracy to receive kick-backs from a Michigan hospice.

The federal government says the doctor received thousands of dollars for referring dying patients to Guardian Angel Home Care.

He has been locked up for six weeks since he was charged with collecting millions for unnecessary treatments.
