A nurse at a Berlin hospital has been arrested on suspicion that she killed two patients at a cardiology unit, prosecutors said Thursday.
The 54-year-old was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of murder and was being questioned, Berlin prosecutors said in a statement.
The nurse is accused of giving deadly overdoses to two seriously ill patients, ages 62 and 77, at the Charite hospital's cardiological intensive care unit. The deaths occurred in mid-August and in early October.
Prosecutors ordered an immediate autopsy on the second patient. The first already has been cremated.
There was no immediate word on a possible motive for the alleged killings, and it was unclear what led to the suspect's arrest, reports AP.
Prosecutors said an autopsy was carried out Thursday on the body of a third patient who died when the nurse was on duty. The suspect's name was not released.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
