A nurse accused of killing five patients

A nurse for 27 years, Rebecca Leighton, is on trial for having manipulated blood transfusions, injecting a solution of table salt instead of insulin, causing the deaths of five patients at the hospital in Stockport, near Manchester. The nurse has been accused of having endangered the lives of six people and theft of drugs, without any known reason for their actions.

The events became known a week ago and police were deployed at the site. The woman was arrested Wednesday and questioned for several days.
