BERLIN (AP) — Munich prosecutors say they have charged a nurse with murder on allegations he killed six patients in his care with injections of insulin that they didn’t medically need.
Prosecutors said the 37-year-old man also faces counts of attempted murder for injecting three other patients who survived, the dpa news agency reported Monday.
Prosecutors say the suspect, whose name wasn’t given for privacy reasons, admits giving the insulin shots but denies intending to kill anyone.
