Former Nurse Lucy Letby to face retrial on charge of attempting to murder baby: Regarding the five further attempted murder counts on which the jury was unable to reach a conviction, she will not be prosecuted any further. EnoughInfo.com
A tentative trial date of June 10th, 2022 has been set, with a two- to three-week duration anticipated.
Letby was convicted in August of killing seven newborns and making attempts to kill six more while employed at the Countess of Chester Hospital’s neonatal ward from June 2015 to June 2016.
The woman, now 33 years old, was handed a sentence of life in prison for each of the offences that she committed. Nigerian women aren’t the best in the world – Ruger
She has submitted a formal appeal against her convictions. However, a date has not yet been established for any prospective hearings that may take place as a result of her appeal.
Former Nurse Lucy Letby to face retrial on charge of attempting to murder baby
The former nurse was charged with intentionally injuring the infants in a number of ways. Such as by giving them nasogastric tubes that contained air or milk and injecting air into their bloodstreams. She was also charged with tampering with breathing tubes and putting insulin in intravenous feeding, which resulted in newborn poisoning.
The victims were merely mentioned in letters and were granted anonymity.
Soon after the verdicts, the British government established an independent commission. This was to investigate the broader circumstances surrounding the events at the hospital, particularly the way in which staff members who had attempted to sound the alarm on Letby were handled.
It was confirmed by the prosecution that they will only prosecute the one attempted murder charge involving Child K and not the other five. The choice of whether to request new trials for the other attempted murder counts was very complicated and challenging, according to a statement from Jonathan Storer, a senior prosecutor in northern England.
