TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Manhattan doctor has waived his right to a preliminary hearing on federal charges that he operated a pill mill of painkillers and antidepressants for police and Fort Riley soldiers and their families.

Michael P. Schuster waived his preliminary hearing Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Topeka.

The case is scheduled to go to a grand jury to hear the government's evidence about Schuster's alleged activities at his northeast Kansas medical clinic. Magistrate Judge Gary Sebelius set detainment hearing for Schuster for May 7 in Topeka.

The 53-year-old Schuster remains in federal custody. He is charged in a federal complaint with conspiring to illegally distribute controlled substances. Schuster operates Manhattan Pain and Spine about 15 miles from Fort Riley.
