OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA — A former Oklahoma based doctor was brought back to the state to face murder charges.
Police arrested 71 year-old William Valuck at his home in Texas on Friday.
He is charged with nine counts of homicide and 43 counts of drug distribution.
Authorities say eight of his patients died of prescription overdoses and another patient was accused of causing a fatal traffic accident.

He spent several years in federal prison before being released and moving to Texas.
