Private inititive death panel, not paid for by tax money

I know I've been posting a lot of "rot at the top" stuff lately, so here's something a little different....
William Melchert-Dinkel, 47, an American nurse with a loving family, allegedly spent years posing as a twentysomething woman while trawling the internet for people he could persuade to kill themselves while he watched.

I can't find anything solid on what he's charged with, though assisting suicide seems to be part of it.

It would be interesting if he could be charged with fraud-- he set up suicide pacts, but his webcam would fail at the crucial moment.

A British grandmother tracked him down. The BBC was very tiresome about her not being the sort of person one would expect to be a sleuth.
