The facts are particularly gruesome, especially probably coming from a person who is supposed to heal, not kill. A nurse at Chester hospital in the west of England was arrested and charged Thursday with eight murders and ten attempted murders of babies, local police said.
Already discontinued in 2018 and 2019
Lucie Letby, a 30-year-old nurse, is accused of murders in the neonatal unit of the hospital “over the period from June 2015 to June 2016”, police said. The young woman, who had already been arrested without further action in 2018 and 2019, was “arrested again on Tuesday, November 10 and has since been charged”.
Kept in detention, she will appear this Thursday before Warrington court, located about thirty kilometers from Chester.
