The mysterious death of a newborn boy at Marin General Hospital last March is now being investigated by state officials.

The Marin County coroner's office says it turned over the case because Marin General declined to provide documents without a subpoena or court order.

Meantime, the Marin Independent Journal reports that a nurse administered a labor-inducing drug without a doctor's authorization.

The hospital is refusing to comment on the case, but a spokesperson did say tragic events do happen.
