Dallas-area surgeon Christopher Duntsch, a/k/a Dr. Death, was sentenced to life in prison for injury to an elderly individual, a first degree felony.  The victim lost a third of her blood and the use of both legs.  Dozens of surgery patients testified at the sentencing phase of his trial as to how he maimed them.  Patients presented to Duntsch to address back problems and instead left his care disfigured or unable to move.  Many patients are now left with chronic, debilitating pain.  At least two patients died as a result of Duntsch’s actions.  The lawyer representing Duntsch argued his client was merely incompetent, but in a chilling e-mail, Duntsch stated that he wanted to “become a cold blooded killer.”
