BRIDGEPORT - A man accused of sexually assaulting students at Bridgeport Hospital's nursing school was found dead Monday.

Stamford police say 62-year-old Barry Barkinsky died from an apparent suicide in his home.

Bridgeport police say Barkinsky performed unapproved medical procedures on students while working at the hospital's nursing school and took hundreds of pictures of the victims.

He was last in court about two weeks ago when he pleaded not guilty.
