Two Baltimoreans, 2 others indicted in assisted suicide

March 11, 2010

Four members of an assisted-suicide group, including two Baltimore men, were indicted Tuesday on charges of helping a 58-year-old man with cancer kill himself, more than a year after they were arrested in the Georgia case. Dr. Lawrence D. Egbert, then a private physician with ties to the Johns Hopkins University, and Nicholas Alec Sheridan, then a part-time legislative aide to Del. Maggie L. McIntosh, a Baltimore Democrat, were arrested in Baltimore in February 2009. Ted Goodwin, then-president of Final Exit, and another Georgia member were also arrested. All four and the group were indicted Tuesday by a Forsyth County, Ga., grand jury. Jerry Dincin, who became president after Goodwin's arrest, said the group has not been involved in any suicides since it was charged.
