TUCSON, Ariz. - A former doctor was charged with conspiracy to murder one of his patients.

A state grand jury indicted Glenn Gary Robertson on the charge Monday. He was arrested at a Benson home and booked into Pima County Jail on a $1 million bond last week, but the case will be tried in Cochise County Superior Court.

According to the indictment, Robertson conspired to commit the murder between Jan. 1 and March 5 this year.

The FBI, DEA and Arizona Attorney General's office investigated the case.

Robertson committed several violations while working as a doctor:

  • 2009 - the Arizona Medical Board placed Robertson on probation for 2 years, after questions arose about his prescribing medication to an employee.
  • June 2018 - the board received another complaint about Robertson's behavior, with allegations he sold narcotic prescriptions.
  • Dec. 14, 2018 - the Arizona Medical Board revoked his license.
