Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

SELF-STYLED “an­gel turned evil” Vic­torino Chua (above) has been jailed for at least 35 years for mur­der­ing two pa­tients and poi­son­ing 20 oth­ers.

Fa­ther-of-two Chua, 49 – de­scribed by cops as a nar­cis­sis­tic psy­chopath – in­jected in­sulin into saline bags and am­poules while work­ing at Stock­port’s Step­ping Hill Hos­pi­tal in 2011.

Filipino Chua was con­victed by a jury at Manch­ester Crown Court yes­ter­day af­ter a four-month trial.

Mr Jus­tice Open­shaw de­scribed the nurse as a “danger­ous and de­vi­ous” man, telling the court: “He has com­mit­ted a dread­ful crime and he must now pay the price.”

Pros­e­cu­tors had pre­sented a self-penned let­ter found at Chua’s home in Stock­port af­ter his ar­rest in Jan­uary 2012.

In the let­ter, de­scribed as “the bit­ter nurse con­fes­sion” by Chua, he said he was “an an­gel turned into an evil per­son” and re­vealed “there’s a devil in me”. BABY car­rots in the US aren’t ac­tu­ally baby car­rots – they’re full size car­rots cut into the shape of baby
