Kevorkian Innocent

PONTIAC, Michigan () -- Dr. Jack Kevorkian escaped conviction on assisted-suicide charges for the third time in two years.

The jury deliberated for 13 hours over three days before finding Kevorkian innocent in the suicides of Sherry Miller and Marjorie Wantz at a rural cabin in 1991.

Prosecutors have yet to convict the retired pathologist, who has acknowledged attending 28 deaths since 1990 and has become so brazen that he even took part in a suicide during the trial.

Miller died by inhaling carbon monoxide; Wantz received a lethal injection.

and declared that the only thing that can stop him now is "being burned at the stake."
