CHESTER: A nurse has been arrested for alleged murder of eight babies and attempted murder of 10 others at a local hospital in England’s Chester city.
Cheshire police said Lucy Letby, 30, was charged with the felonies after the prosecutors approved it. She was briefly detained and released in 2018 and 2019 as well.
Police said, “The crimes are related to a number of baby deaths and non-fatal collapses at the neonatal unit at the Countess of Chester Hospital between June 2015 and June 2016.”
The detained nurse will be produced before the magistrates in Warrington on Thursday (today).
