British Nurse Bags Life Imprisonment For Killing 7 Newborn Babies

A British nurse, Lucy Letby, who was convicted of murdering seven babies and the attempted murder of six others has lost her bid to appeal.

Letby, 34, had asked for permission to challenge the verdict after she was convicted and sentenced to life in prison last year.

A three-judge panel of Britain’s Court of Appeal heard the case in April and released its decision on Friday, Associated Press reports.

“Having heard her application, we have decided to refuse leave to appeal on all grounds and refuse all associated applications,″ Judge Victoria Sharp said. “A full judgment will be handed down in due course.”

In August 2023, the nurse was sentenced to life imprisonment for killing seven newborn babies. She has been described as Britain’s most prolific serial child killer of modern times.

She murdered five baby boys and two baby girls at the neonatal unit of Countess of Chester Hospital in northern England over a period of 13 months, from 2015.

She was found to have injected the infants with insulin or air or force-fed them their milk.

Some of those she attacked were twins and she murdered both siblings in one of the tragic cases.

She killed two siblings from a set of three triplets in another case.
