(CNN) — A former Oklahoma-based doctor has been brought back to the state to face murder charges.
Police arrested William Valuck, 71, 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 that died of prescription drug overdoses and another patient was accused of causing a fatal traffic accident.
