Fugitive doctor expected in Indiana court

Dr. Mark Weinberger, a northwest Indiana nose surgeon who disappeared in 2004 to avoid Medicare fraud charges and hundreds of civil lawsuits, is scheduled to appear in an Indiana federal court room Monday.

Weinberger went missing while on vacation with his wife in Greece. His run ended in December after authorities found him camping out at the base of a glacier in the Italian Alps.

Weinberger was flown back to the U.S. last week and was held in jail in Chicago. He's expected to go before a federal judge in Hammond.
