Cadden and Glenn Adam Chin, a pharmacist who was in charge of NECC’s sterile room, are charged with racketeering for allegedly causing the deaths of patients who received tainted steroids manufactured by the company.

Both are accused in a federal indictment of “acting in wanton and willful disregard of the likelihood ” that their actions would cause death or great bodily harm, officials said.

Chin’s lawyer, Stephen Weymouth, said he was stunned that prosecutors charged his client with second-degree murder under the federal racketeering law and that they allege that he and Cadden caused the death of patients.
