A former nurse plead guilty to two counts of first-degree murder — for killing eight seniors in her care!
Elizabeth Wettlaufer was indicted on four counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault after she acknowledged under questioning in court that she injected the eight people who died with insulin — for no medical reason!
The incidents occurred between 2007 and 2014 in three long-term care facilities where Wettlaufer worked as a registered nurse, and at a private home.
The 49-year-old was first registered as a nurse in August 1995, but resigned Sept. 30, 2016.
She reportedly told one of her victims, “I’m sorry, I love you” before injecting him, but claimed “it felt like the pressure was relieved” after he died.
Wettlaufer described getting a “red surging feeling ” when she chose a dementia patient to be her next victim after serving her blueberry pie, declaring, “It was her time. I had this sense that God wanted her back.”
The police began investigating the cowardly caregiver after they became aware of information she had given to a psychiatric hospital that caused them concern.
Some family members of Wettlaufer’s victims visibly broke down in the courtroom.
“She took away my best friend and my hero and I can’t forgive that,” said Arpad Horvath Jr., whose father, Arpad Horvath Sr. was among Wettlaufer’s victims.
Wettlaufer has not yet been sentenced as the hearing is currently ongoing.
