Ex-Nurse to Plead Guilty in Patient Deaths

  1. A former nurse who claims to have killed as many as 40 patients in New Jersey and Pennsylvania is expected to plead guilty, according to two published reports.

    Charles Cullen will plead guilty Thursday to murdering a dozen patients in a deal that spares him the death penalty, Gannett New Jersey and The Star-Ledger of Newark reported Saturday.

    The newspapers, citing unnamed sources close to the investigation, said Cullen would then be sent to Pennsylvania to plead guilty to an unspecified number of charges.

    So sad this maniac slipped through the cracks. Now I have patients and families suspiciously watching every move I make, fearful I may be trying to kill them. <sigh>
