Texas nurse could face death penalty for deaths
Posted on Friday, March 9th, 2012
A Lufkin nurse has pleaded not guilty to five charges of murder after being accused of poisoning kidney dialysis patients with toxic bleach nearly four years ago.
She is accused of injecting toxic bleach into the dialysis lines of patients going through kidney dialysis; five people died and five others were injured as a result. Investigators say they found Internet searches on her computer about bleach detection in dialysis lines and bleach poisoning in blood.
A FDA report also shows that many patients tested positive for bleach and some showed signs of having bleach in their system at some time. Her lawyer refutes any wrongdoing on his client’s part.
