Accused Doctor Considered Flight Risk

Federal prosecutors told a magistrate judge

A Kansas doctor linked to drug overdoses by active-duty Fort Riley soldiers remains jailed for now as a possible flight risk.

Federal prosecutors told a magistrate judge Wednesday that Michael P. Schuster, of Manhattan, has more than $1 million outside the U.S., a home in Paraguay and two passports. A hearing to determine whether he should remain in custody pending trial has been set for Tuesday in Topeka.

Schuster is charged in a criminal complaint with conspiracy to distribute drugs. His first hearing left unanswered whether any soldiers or family members died from overdoses, as indicated in an affidavit.

Defense attorney Barry Clark declined comment, saying he has not yet seen the government’s evidence.

A federal grand jury is expected to consider the case next week for indictment.
