Indictment alleges nurse was 'Angel of Death'

Daily Herald Indictment alleges nurse was 'Angel of Death': "A worker at a McHenry County nursing home gave patients dangerous doses of morphine and other drugs in 2006 with the permission of a facility director who told her to serve as an 'Angel of Death,' according a McHenry County grand jury.
Both women now face multiple felony charges alleging they jeopardized patients' lives, but authorities stopped short Friday of accusing either of killing or intending to kill the home's residents.
The indictments come after a 15-month state police investigation into the home sparked by allegations that a former employee had performed as many as six mercy killings at the Woodstock Residence nursing home in 2006."
