NH doctor charged with sex assaults found dead  

BOW, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire doctor accused of sexually assaulting patients has been found dead in a hotel room in Meredith.

The Citizen reports (http://bit.ly/HdxUoX) Dr. Steven Chern, who had surrendered his medical license, was found unresponsive Monday afternoon in a room at Church Landing. He was declared dead a short time later.

The 64-year-old Chern, formerly of the Bow Mills Family Practice, was indicted by a grand jury on charges of sexual assault involving a patient and faced separate charges of assaulting another patient. He had been arrested in October.

He was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday, and a trial was scheduled for August.
