WILLIAMSPORT — An expert witness for the federal government testified Tuesday that Dr. Raymond Kraynak was responsible for the overdose deaths of five patients between October 2013 and May 2015 whom he prescribed opioids to at his Mount Carmel office.

Dr. Stephen Thomas, an expert in pain medicine and addiction, spent the entire day on the witness stand after testifying for five hours Monday in Kraynak’s scheduled four-week federal jury trial before Chief U.S. Middle District Judge Matthew William Brann.
