Police complete case against hospital nurse suspected of killing six

Police have called on the state prosecution service to charge a former hospital nurse alleged to have killed six patients at a hospital in the north Bohemian town of Rumburk. Police said they had completed their investigation and wanted charges to be pressed which could result in a sentence of life imprisonment for the accused. The investigation into Věra Marešová was launched last September after the death of one patient which was first thought to have been a mercy killing through an overdose of potassium, but it was soon widened to a series of suspect deaths.
