A woman who used to work as a nursing assistant at Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center in West Virginia admitted that she killed seven veterans and poisoned another. Prosecutors said that while Reta Mays, 46, was working night shifts at the hospital between July 2017 and June 2018, she injected the patients with insulin even though they were not diabetic.
The insulin caused their blood sugar to drop, resulting in severe hypoglycemia. One of Mays’ intended victims survived and made a full recovery. Mays denied the charges for nearly two years before deciding to plead guilty to seven counts of second-degree murder and one count of assault with intent to commit murder. more
