(Reuters) – Drugmaker KaloBios Pharmaceuticals Inc said it fired Martin Shkreli as chief executive on Dec. 17, the day he was arrested on charges of a securities fraud. Shkreli, who has become the poster child for the issue of soaring prices for prescription medications, has already stepped down as CEO of private drugmaker Turing Pharmaceuticals Inc, in addition to resigning from KaloBios' board of directors. Shkreli was arrested last week for engaging in what U.S. prosecutors said was a Ponzi-like scheme at his former hedge fund MSMB Capital Management and Retrophin Inc , a company he headed before he took the helm of Turing Pharmaceuticals.
