Baby Killer Nurse Sentenced to Life in Prison
After a trial that lasted nine months, a jury convicted former nurse Lucy Letby in the murder of seven babies and the attempted murder of seven more. The crimes took place in the neonatal unit of the Countess of Chester Hospital, about 20 miles from Liverpool, England. The victims were killed by injections of air or insulin, or by being force-fed milk. The judge has sentenced Letby to a “whole life order,” which in the U.K. means a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
