Neonatal Nurse Baby Killer Pleads Not Guilty

A nurse in the U.K. pleaded not guilty Monday to accusations that she murdered five baby boys and two girls, and attempted to murder 10 more children.

Lucy Letby, 32, was a “constant, malevolent presence” in the neonatal unit of the Countess of Chester Hospital, prosecutor Nick Johnson argued before a jury at Manchester Crown Court in northwest England, according to The Independent.

Of the babies Letby allegedly murdered or attempted to murder between 2015 and 2016, the prosecution said she injected some with insulin, while another she injected with air. She allegedly attempted to kill one baby three times.

Johnson told jurors “a poisoner was at work” at the hospital, which he said had been marked by a “significant rise in the number of babies who were dying and in the number of serious catastrophic collapses” after January 2015, before which he said its rates of infant mortality were comparable to other busy hospitals.

After hospital authorities investigated the sudden surge in infant deaths, Johnson explained that they found Letby to be the “common denominator,” and that the deaths aligned with her changing work hours.

“Lucy Letby was on duty when both were poisoned, and we allege she was the poisoner,” Johnson told jurors. “There’s a very restricted number of people who could have been the poisoner, because entry to a neonatal unit is closely restricted.”

“The collapses of all 17 children concerned were not ‘naturally occurring tragedies,'” Johnson also said. “They were all the work, we say, of the woman in the dock, who we say was the constant, malevolent presence when things took a turn for the worse for these 17 children.”

Letby was first arrested on suspicion of committing the crimes in 2018, according to the Cheshire Police Department, but “was subsequently bailed pending further enquiries.”

She was arrested again a year later “on suspicion of murder in relation to the deaths of 8 babies and the attempted murder of 6 babies,” and “the attempted murder of three additional babies,” police said.

Letby pleaded not guilty to seven counts of murder and 15 counts of attempted murder. Her trial is slated to last for up to six months.

  1. If the authorities do not take this nurse out, then the parents should have the right to take her out.

  2. Authorities need to prosecute this nurse if they prove she is guilty. Execution should be on the table

    • Pat, you’ve said it!! This EVIL WITCH does it, is FOR THE MONEY! EVERYTHING is done for the love of money, it this country, including the butchering of babies BURNING IN HELL is what I wish for her and her ‘ demonic ‘ buddies, but we’ve got a MERCIFUL God, and if they come to repent of their sins, receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior, they’ll end in Heaven with Him! If not, BURNING IN HELL is their destiny!
      Bring the ‘smores’!

  3. She should be fired and never allowed to be a nurse again. carol

  4. They should put this POS in general population. I’m sure that the other inmates will take ‘good’ care of this baby killer. 👶

  5. The UK does NOT have Capital Punishment BUT, their prisons are similar to our in the fact that inmates do not like or tolerate those who murder children, especially babies! She will be very lucky to survive those 6 months in captivity during the trial and she certainly will not last out a year in prison before someone gives her the DP while incarcerated. The ONLY reason she would last that long is if she is in protected custody or because the other prisoners wish to torture her during that period of time.

  6. Now before someone comes up with the idea that they will simply give her a false name etc. the prisoners will know who she is even before she arrives or within hours of her arrival and/or they will place her in PC, let me tell you that PC is only granted and used only on prisoners who have violated the Laws in a manner as to make the prisoners mad and the prison guards have sympathy for them. These guards will have zero sympathy for this monster.

  7. Innocent until proven guilty. Though it’s extremely likely that she’s guilty, possibly she’s not. Maybe there’s some toxic substance in the neonatal word which is causing the deaths. Wait until the proof of gult.
