An expert confirms that a Southern Kentucky Judge died from steroid shots tainted with a fungus linked to a nationwide meningitis outbreak.

Judge Eddie Lovelace died at a Nashville Hospital after a stroke.

That was after getting steroids shots to his neck and back after a car crash.

Pathologist George Nichols performed an autopsy on Lovelace and says the shots did have that fungus.

Lovelace's death opened up a Judgeship that will now be filled by Senate President David Williams.
