Two Massachusetts men are reportedly facing trial in Michigan in connection with the 2012 fungal meningitis outbreak that likely killed more than 100 people in 20 states across the country and sickened hundreds more.

Barry Cadden, 56, the owner of the now-defunct New England Compounding Center in Framingham, Massachusetts, and Glenn Chin, 54, a supervising pharmacist, are already serving time in federal prison for fraud and extortion, according to FOX 2 in Detroit. .

Cadden and Chin were again harshly sentenced by a federal judge in Massachusetts last year after the US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit threw out their original sentences, saying sentencing enhancements should be considered on the charges. .

They are currently 14.5 years old and 10.5 years old, respectively.

“Eleven Michiganders tragically died as a result of a lack of concern for patient safety,” said Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel. “My department looks forward to taking the next steps to seek justice for the victims and their families.”

A Michigan judge denied requests by the two defendants to be given a list of the charges against them and to have the seized computer evidence suppressed.
