Police in the northwestern English city of Chester said Wednesday they had charged a nurse with eight homicide cases and ten attempted murder of babies at a local hospital.
A 30-year-old named Lucy Letby was arrested Tuesday and charged with the crimes after prosecution cleared it, Cheshire police said in a statement.
The indictment relates to “a series of deaths and non-fatal collapses of babies in the neonatal ward of the Countess of Chester Hospital” between June 2015 and June 2016, they added.
Letby will be taken into custody ahead of a first appearance before the judges in nearby Warrington on Thursday.
She was previously arrested but released without charge in 2018 and 2019.
