With non-prescribed medication brings a nurse children at the preemie ward of the Marburg University Hospital in mortal danger. The court attested to the defendant narcissistic features, behind their actions is from the point of view of the judges Profilierungssucht. Outwardly calm, the 30-year-old takes her punishment.
She was supposed to take care of preemies and almost treacherously killed her. A former pediatric nurse was sentenced to life imprisonment for attempted murder, among other things. The Marburg district court found the 30-year-old guilty of giving three premature babies medically untreated tranquilizers and anesthetics and putting two of them at risk – out of urgency. The accused accepted the deaths of the two children "for their own sake taken, "said the presiding judge. The accused took the verdict externally calm. She also showed no clear visible reaction, as still issued in the courtroom arrest warrant because of flight danger: "They are arrested," said the chairman to the Germans, who was previously at large. The defendant had worked at the premature station of the University Hospital Marburg , According to the court, the deeds occurred between December 2015 and February 2016. Motive: The defendant, who was otherwise struck with average or weak performance, wanted to profile himself as a rescuer. "Russian roulette played with the child's life" The parents of the poisoned babies reacted with relief to the verdict. "For this heinous act, what she did to the children, so someone behind bars," said a mother. While two children survived the drug poisoning, their daughter Leni died – from the point of view of the court, however, on another cause. Although she was disappointed that the judges in her case did not go out of murder, but "infinitely happy" about the life imprisonment. The judges considered the first act an attempted dangerous assault, even though little Leni died. There was no correlation between the – in this case moderate – medication and the death of the baby can be detected, said the judge. "It was a fateful process." The defendant sought, according to the court's conviction, a second victim, then a third one. This girl is said to have given the 30-year-old several times medication, in "highly toxic" doses. She had "deliberately played Russian roulette with the child's life," the chairman said. The accused had hoped that the deeds would create a "resuscitation situation" in which she could excel as an excellent nurse. Or in case of failure as a consolation for mourning parents. Accused caught with errors The court attested to the defendant narcissistic features. The play in the deeds as well as their desire to recognize. The 30-year-old thus comes from a family of academics, her father is a pediatrician, but with her it was "only" enough for a nurse. During her work at the preemie ward, she was also noticed with errors. The defendant had been silent during the ten-month trial on the allegations, which include dangerous injuries and mistreatment of wards. The defense had pleaded for acquittal and noted that more people would come as offenders in question. In addition, it is not excluded that the 30-year-old victim of a conspiracy could have become. The court considered this outrageous and emphasized that in all incidents the defendant had been the responsible night nurse. There are also many other clues that burdened them. Colleagues of the defendants had become suspicious in the end. The comprehensive clarification of the incidents was for the hospital "from the first suspicion of the highest priority," said the hospital. "That's why we've always been fully supportive of police and prosecutorial investigations." Whether the defense will go to the revision, was initially unclear.
