Brown commented Friday on charges against Stern and two doctors who allegedly prescribed pills to Smith before her fatal overdose in 2007.

Asked about possible motives of the alleged conspiracy, Brown said, "There's a certain psychic gain here, part of the glitz the celebrity and the power."

The attorney general added, "There's a lot of money floating around."

Stern and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor surrendered and were released late Thursday. Their attorneys have not commented.

Dr. Khristine Eroshevich is expected to surrender Monday. Her attorney says she wrote prescriptions using fictitious names for Smith's privacy.
