Ger­man nurse killed 106 pa­tients: Po­lice

Daily Nation (Kenya) - - INTERNATIONAL NEWS -

A Ger­man nurse who used lethal drugs on pa­tients “out of bore­dom” is re­spon­si­ble for the deaths of 106 peo­ple, in­ves­ti­ga­tors said, not­ing the toll could rise as more bod­ies were stud­ied. Niels Hoegel, 41, was con­victed in 2015 of two mur­ders and four counts of at­tempted mur­der or caus­ing bodily harm on in­ten­sive-care pa­tients at Del­men­horst hos­pi­tal near the city of Bre­men. How­ever, ex­huma­tions and analy­ses have un­cov­ered ev­i­dence of scores of other vic­tims, with po­lice say­ing in Au­gust that Hoegel had mur­dered more than 90 pa­tients. Po­lice and prose­cu­tors con­firmed an ad­di­tional 16 deaths, at­trib­uted to the nurse. (AFP)
