Anna Nicole Smith's Former Attorney Allegedly Sending Threat to Witness

In the Anna Nicole Smith drugs trial, attorney Howard K. Stern is said threatening a potential witness, who is the actress' ex-lover, by sending message on social networking website MySpace.

Cops in the U.S. have reportedly launched an investigation into allegations Howard K. Stern threatened a potential witness in the Anna Nicole Smith drugs trial. Stern, Smith's former attorney, is accused along with medics Dr. Sandeep Kapoor and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich of conspiring to supply the late actress/model with prescription pills, resulting in her death in 2007. They are awaiting trial on a total of 23 felony charges.

Now police in South Carolina have launched a probe after a possible witness in the case, Mark Hatten, one of Smith's ex-lovers, alleged he received a threatening message from Stern on social networking website MySpace, according to TMZ.

In a police report obtained by the website, Hatten claims he received a personal message on May 3, reading "You are in over your head. You are being watched. Keep a look out before everything comes crashing down, do you understand me?"

The message was sent from a MySpace account in the name of "HowardKevinStern", and cops in Greeleyville have launched an investigation into "intimidation of a witness/harassment via internet". But Stern has flatly denied having anything to do with the message, telling TMZ "Don't you have to have a MySpace account in order to leave a message? I wouldn't even know how to leave a message on MySpace."
