"He was trying to breathe on his own," said Alice Pinette, who had challenged the hospital's attempts to exercise her husband's living will. "These people, they actually killed the man."..

David Evans, the hospital's attorney, said the hospital told Alice Pinette on Sunday it was planning to remove the ventilator on Wednesday. Evans told her attorney the next day.
