Lucy Letby, 33, was also convicted of trying to kill six other babies at the Countess of Chester Hospital’s neonatal unit between 2015 to 2016.
She attacked infants by injecting insulin, milk, or air into their tiny bodies, leading to their sudden collapse. The prosecution brought a total of 17 cases if there were no more.
She was accused of physically assaulting one baby and causing a liver injury akin to a road traffic collision.
Letby took four attempts to kill one baby girl, attacked three sets of twins, twice murdered one twin, and murdered two triplets within 24 hours of each other.
She was found not guilty of two attempted murder charges, and the jury was uncertain on further attempted murder charges relating to four babies.
Prosecutors claimed that Lucy was an “opportunist” who had preyed on sick children while she was alone with them and used their vulnerabilities to “camouflage” her episodes.
If she was who they said she was, you wonder how she had gotten away with her crimes for a long time.
According to the prosecutors, she was only able to get away because her colleagues could not fathom the thought that there was a murderer on the unit.
Lucy carried out social media searches of babies’ parents and was accused of being “a killer who was looking at your victims.”
