New details in death of Donda West

December 3, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
There is a new twist in the investigation into the death of Donda West. She's the mother of rap star Kanye West. According to the LA Times, authorities are investigating Donda West's nephew, Stephan Scoggins.

Scoggins is a registered nurse. He was in charge of caring for West after she returned home from a plastic surgery procedure in 2007.

She died unexpectedly a day later.

Among other things, an autopsy report revealed West died of coronary artery disease.

Given that pre-existing condition and the extensive surgery, authorities say she should have received post operative care in a recovery center.

Authorities are now trying to determine if Scoggins was negligent in his care.
