Prosecutors say a West Hartford physician charged with over-prescribing prescription medications has agreed to pay a fine under the Controlled Substances Act.

U.S. Attorney for Connecticut David Fein says allegations against Dr. Murray Wellner were that he wrote eleven prescriptions for controlled substances which were not dispensed to the people named on the prescripton.

Prosecutors say under terms of the settlement, Dr. Wellner will pay $42,500 to resolve the allegations.
