Nurse killed elderly
ONTARIO: A Canadian nurse pleaded guilty this week to using insulin to kill eight elderly patients in long-term care facilities over seven years, the Crown prosecutor said.
Elizabeth Wettlaufer was accused of killing five women and three men in the Ontario towns of Woodstock and London between 2007 and 2014. The dead were aged 75 to 96.
Wettlaufer, whose motive is unclear, pleaded guilty to eight counts of first-degree murder, four other counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault.
She could face life in prison when sentenced.
