-- A pregnant woman who died while under house arrest for welfare fraud ingested 13 times her prescribed dose of a powerful antidepressant in order to kill herself, a suicide expert said yesterday at an inquest into her death.

Kimberly Rogers had 4,000 milligrams of amitriptyline in her system -- nearly 2½ times the amount needed to kill her, Dr. Isaac Sakinofsky said.

"Nobody gets addicted to this particular drug," said Dr. Sakinofsky, a psychiatry professor at the University of Toronto. CP
