A Canadian nurse who used insulin to kill eight elderly patients in long-term care facilities has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years.
Elizabeth Wettlaufer pleaded guilty this month to killing five women and three men in the Ontario towns of Woodstock and London between 2007 and 2014. The dead ranged in age from 75 to 96.
The victims were fatally injected with insulin for no medical reasons.
CBC reported that she apologised in court to her victims' families on Tuesday (local time), but her motive remains unclear.
