Lucy Letby Serial killer nurse found guilty of attempted murder of extremely premature baby

Recommended Posts

The 34-year-old serial killer was on trial at Manchester Crown Court accused of the attempted murder of a baby girl, known as Child K. It comes after she was convicted last August of the murder of seven babies.

The 34-year-old was convicted of attempting to murder the child, referred to in court as Baby K, following a retrial.

In a statement, Baby K's family described having to endure a "long, torturous and emotional journey - twice".

"Today, justice has been served. But it does not take away the extreme hurt, anger and distress that we have all had to experienced," they said.

Last August, Letby was convicted by a different jury of the murders of seven babies and the attempted murders of six others at the Countess of Chester Hospital's neo-natal unit between June 2015 and June 2016.

However, a verdict on the allegation relating to Baby K could not be reached, and a retrial was ordered, heard at Manchester Crown Court.
