Assisted-suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian is back in prison after undergoing surgery for a double hernia.
Lawyer Mayer Morganroth says Kevorkian returned to the Thumb Correctional Facility in Lapeer Sunday. Morganroth says Kevorkian is in pain and is expected to receive some follow-up treatment.
Seventy-six-year-old Kevorkian is serving a 10- to 25-year sentence for second-degree murder after being convicted of giving a fatal injection of drugs to a Lou Gehrig's disease patient in 1998.
He was released from prison last Thursday and underwent surgery Friday at Foote Hospital in Jackson. Kevorkian was kept in a separate wing apart from other patients and was under constant guard.
