On Wednesday the northwestern English city Chester Police said they had charged a 30-year-old nurse identified as Lucy Letby with eight counts of murder and ten of attempted murder against babies at a local hospital.
The Cheshire police in a statement said the nurse was arrested on Tuesday and charged with the crimes once prosecutors gave the go-ahead, Cheshire police said in a statement.
they added that the charges relate to “a number of baby deaths and non-fatal collapses at the neonatal unit at the Countess of Chester Hospital” between June 2015 and June 2016.
30-year-old Letby is in custody ahead of a first appearance before magistrates in nearby Warrington today, Thursday.
The report says She had previously been arrested but released without charge in 2018 and 2019.
