SCRANTON — A doctor in Lackawanna County charged with conspiracy has died.

Dr. Leroy Pelicci, owner of Pelicci Pain Relief Center in Scranton died Wednesday.

Federal investigators say Pelicci and his wife Ann withdrew more than $430, 000 from four banks to avoid reporting that money to the federal government.

Ann Pelicci pleaded not guilty last week.

Dr. Pelicci did not appear in court because his lawyer said he had cancer and was very sick.
