Maradona death probe widens

A psychologist and two nurses who helped care for football legend Diego Maradona before his death have been added to a widening involuntary manslaughter probe, a judicial source told local media Monday, reports AFP. Maradona died of a heart attack outside Buenos Aires on November 25, weeks after undergoing brain surgery on a blood clot. His psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov and heart surgeon Leopoldo Luque are already under investigation, as they were treating Maradona before his death.  Investigators are trying to determine if any of the five people who had Maradona in their care were in any way negligent.
