Case of eastern Ontario doctor charged with murder adjourned to next month


L’ORIGNAL, Ont. — An eastern Ontario doctor facing a murder charge has had his case adjourned to next month.

Dr. Brian Nadler is accused of killing 89-year-old Albert Poidinger at the Hawkesbury and District General Hospital last year.

Ontario Provincial Police have said they were called to the hospital on March 25, 2021, after which Poidinger was declared dead and Nadler was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

Police have also said they are investigating Nadler with other deaths at the hospital.

Nadler received bail in July and his lawyer has said his client maintains his innocence.

Crown attorney Robin Flumerfelt says a judicial pre-trial is ongoing in the case and next set for March 11, with the case then returning to court on March 16.
