Ex-Playboy centerfold Anna Nicole Smith’s psychiatrist, who is charged with conspiracy for allegedly funneling drugs to the actress, has turned herself in at the Los Angeles Police Department's Van Nuys station. Khristine Eroshevich surrendered to police for excessively prescribing drugs to Smith, which led to her 2007 fatal overdose death, according to media reports.

Eroshevich, who was Smith's next-door neighbour, faces six felony counts. Bail was set at 20,000 dollars, reports The New York Daily News. As per prosecutors, Eroshevich, Smith's boyfriend Howard K. Stern, 40, and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, 40, gave Smith thousands of pills in the years before her overdose death.

Smith was 39 when she died in Hollywood, Florida, on Feb. 8, 2007, of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs shortly after the birth of her daughter and death of her son, who also died of a drug overdose. Eroshevich prescribed "excessive amounts of controlled substances" - including chloral hydrate and Klonopin - to Smith.
