JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) - Attorneys for a Clayton County psychiatrist accused of causing the overdose-deaths of numerous patients are seeking a more flexible bond arrangement that would allow the physician to work.

Nagareddy's attorney Steve Frey told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://on-ajc.com/2gRsvAZ ) Dr. Narendra Nagareddy is set to go before Judge Matthew Simmons Dec. 6.

Nagareddy is confined to his home under a $456,000 bond.

Frey says there are some restrictions in his bond and they would like to have them either relaxed or removed. He says Nagareddy would like to be able to worship and see his attorney in his attorney's office.

Frey say Nagareddy would like to seek employment opportunities outside of medicine, if they are available.

A trial date has not been set.
