Prosecutors Won’t Call Deputy Examiner

Prosecutors announced Monday that the deputy medical examiner, Dr. Irwin Golden, who performed the autopsies on Ronald Lyle Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson - and who made a series of mistakes - will not be called as a government witness in the trial of O.J. Simpson.
