(AP, Los Angeles) A prosecutor is telling jurors Anna Nicole Smith was surrounded by a circle of enablers that included her boyfriend and her doctors, who did not want her to get well.

Deputy District Attorney Renee Rose, continuing the prosecution’s closing argument Tuesday, said Smith’s doctors continued to prescribe pain killers even when all signs pointed to Smith being addicted.

Rose also says the doctors and Smith’s lawyer-boyfriend, Howard K. Stern, took no action to help her withdraw from opiates and sedatives she had been taking for years.

Stern and the doctors, Sandeep Kapoor and Khristine Eroshevich, are on trial, charged with furnishing excessive medication to an addict.

Smith died of a drug overdose in 2007.
