After a string of arrests early Wednesday, owners and employees of the now-defunct New England Compounding Center have been charged for their roles in the 2012 meningitis outbreak.
Department of Justice officials filed 131 criminal charges against 14 individuals Wednesday, charges which include multiple counts of 2nd-degree murder and racketeering.
