Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien says doses of 500 micrograms of fentanyl were chosen as a threshold for murder charges because they "hastened" death of these patients and were a violation of OH law that says people must be allowed to die naturally.
"At no time did Dr. Husel ever intend to euthanize anyone - euthanize meaning speed up death", defense attorney Richard Blake said.
The patients were going to die whether they were being treated by Dr Husel or another physician, Mr Blake said.
The suspicious deaths occurred at Mount Carmel and St. Ann's Hospitals in Columbus between February 11, 2015, and November 20, 2018, according to the statement. An internal hospital investigation found that he had ordered potentially fatal drug doses for dozens of patients over his five years at the hospital.

O'Brien said on Wednesday that authorities had focused on the cases involving Husel in which 500 micrograms or more of Fentanyl had been prescribed. The prosecutor said the investigation remained open and other cases were still under review.
Husel was sacked by his Columbus-area hospital in December.
Husel was sacked after concerns arose, though Mount Carmel has said it should have investigated and removed Husel more quickly.
The health system's officials said Husel wasn't removed from patient care until four weeks after a concern about him was raised last fall, and that three patients died during those weeks after getting excessive doses he ordered.
