Ex-nurse admits to killing 100 patients in Germany

727a1ef1 Nurse on trial for allegedly killing 100 patients at two German hospitals

The murder charges against him stem from his time at a hospital in Oldenburg between 1999 and 2002 and at another hospital in nearby Delmenhorst from 2003 to 2005.

When asked by the presiding judge Sebastian Buehrmann if the allegations made against him were largely true, Hoegel replied "yes", NDR reported.

The death toll may be even higher than now assumed, because some victims - ages between 34 and 96 - were cremated.

His method was to inject them with drugs which would bring on cardiac failure and he would then attempt resuscitation.

A former nurse serving a life sentence for murder has gone on trial accused of killing a further 100 patients at two hospitals in Germany. The prosecutors speculated that Högel committed the acts out of boredom.

Hoegel's admission comes nearly a year after prosecutors alleged in November 2017 that he was responsible for at least 106 deaths. Investigators are building a case against former staff at both facilities where Hoegel said he killed his patients.

About 126 relatives of the victims are plaintiffs in the trial, according to DW. He was sentenced to life in prison.

He promised Hoegel a fair trial. 'We will make every effort to seek the truth'. "It is like a house with dark rooms - we want to bring light into the darkness".

The trial is expected to continue until May 2019.

Niels Hoegel, 41, has already spent almost a decade in jail on a life term for other patient deaths.

Caught in 2005 while injecting an unprescribed medication into a patient in Delmenhorst, Hoegel was sentenced in 2008 to seven years in prison for attempted murder.

Buehrmann said the main aim of the trial was to establish the full scope of the murder spree that was allowed to go unchecked for years at two German hospitals. But he would fall into a despondent state if he had failed, according to AFP.

During his previous trial, he said he gave his patients heart attacks as he enjoyed the feeling of being able to resuscitate them.

Following the admissions, police expanded their investigation.

Investigators are also probing the responsibility of the hospitals where Hoegel worked.
