A jury has convicted two of the three people put on trial for the drugs given Anna Nicole Smith before her death almost four years ago, ABC News reports.

Says the article, Smith’s "psychiatrist, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, and boyfriend, Howard K. Stern, were found guilty on some counts at a trial alleging a conspiracy to prescribe prescription drugs to an addict. Smith’s doctor, Sandeep Kapoor, was acquitted on all counts he faced."

Said a CNN report, "The jury failed to convict any of the defendants of providing drugs to a known addict, which was the linchpin of the prosecution’s case."

The ABC News article said, "Stern was found guilty of giving false names and acting by fraud to obtain prescriptions, The Associated Press reported. Eroshevich also was convicted of unlawfully prescribing Vicodin by fraud."

Smith died of a prescription medicine overdose in February 2007.

According  to the CNN report, "Stern and Eroshevich could face a maximum of three years each in prison, according to the prosecutor’s office."

Smith became a household name when she appeared on her self-titled reality show on E! that ran for two seasons starting in 2002.
