    (Florida State Prosecutor Frank) Schaub had a witness testify that Carmela’s death was wrongly ascribed to a heart attack because Coppolino persuaded a physician that she had suffered chest pains earlier. He called Carmela’s father to relate how Coppolino claimed an autopsy had proved that a heart attack was the cause of death — though in fact no autopsy had been performed at the time.

    Love your writing Greg. Very captivating article. So Dr. Coppolino got away with murder. Sad…

    I was a young court reporter when this happened. The media would not leave Dr. Coppolino alone — he was unfairly convicted by the press.

    Guilty as sin. Rot in hell.

    Was this a miscarriage of justice? Who knows?

    Carl Coppolino, M.D. was acquitted of murder in New Jersey, but was convicted of second-degree murder in Florida. Odd verdict, that. How the hell can one allegedly administer a drug — which requires premeditation — and be convicted of second-degree?

    I read Coppolino’s book years ago. He discusses his prison experiences, and his legal efforts to gain parole. I remember he was critical of F. Lee Bailey’s money-grubbing after Coppolino’s conviction in Florida.
