An Ohio deputy sheriff is backing up Democratic presidential candidate Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, who's been criticized for telling a story about an uninsured pregnant woman who died after being refused medical treatment.

Bryan Holman says Clinton has been telling the story the way he told it to her. He says he'd gotten the information about the woman second-hand and the version he was told lacked some details.

As the story was repeated, officials at the hospital in Athens, Ohio, came forward and said it wasn't true. They say the woman wouldn't have been turned away, and add, she really did have insurance. They successfully urged the Clinton campaign to stop repeating the story.

But, a relative says at one time the woman didn't have insurance and was turned away from a clinic because she couldn't pay $100 to start settling a past bill.
