Nurse Lucy Letby DENIES Murdering SEVEN Babies and Attempting to Kill TEN More

Lucy Letby, a 33-year-old UK nurse, stands accused of murdering seven babies and attempting to murder another ten in a neonatal unit between June 2015 and June 2016. During her trial at Manchester Crown Court, Letby denied these allegations, asserting that “killing babies” was not on her mind.

Following unusually high infant mortality rates at the Countess of Chester Hospital’s neonatal unit from 2015 to 2016, Hereford-born nurse, Lucy Letby, was arrested but released on bail in 2018. After two more arrests and subsequent releases, Letby was ultimately charged with eight counts of murder and ten counts of attempted murder.

The highly anticipated trial began in October last year and is scheduled to conclude in May.
