NEW YORK (AP) – A New York City physician is accused of causing the death of a patient in a botched abortion.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown said Tuesday that Robert Rho has been indicted on a manslaughter charge.

Authorities allege the patient died in July after a botched abortion procedure.

They say she was allowed to leave the health facility even though she had been bleeding profusely, collapsed and appeared disoriented.

She died that night at a hospital.

There was no immediate information on an attorney who could comment on Rho’s behalf. He lives in Lake Success.
