Closing arguments are scheduled to begin today in the case against Michigan's Chief Medical Executive facing charges connected to the Flint Water Crisis.

Doctor Eden Wells is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of a Genesee County man.

She's also accused of obstruction and lying.

Prosecutors say she failed to notify the public about the deadly legionnaires' disease outbreak in Genesee County in 2014 and 2015.
