Former nurse Lucy Letby is set to go on trial in the UK. Letby has been accused of multiple counts of infanticide.

Lucy Letby, 32, has been charged with seven counts of murder, five boys and two girls, as well as the attempted murder of an additional five boys and five girls, between June 2015 and June 2016.

Letby, of Arran Avenue, Hereford, is said to have committed the murders during a period of one-year while working in the neonatal unit of the Countess of Chester Hospital in Chester.

Letby has denied all charges against her.

Reporting restrictions have prohibited all news outlets from identifying any of the deceased babies or surviving family members.

The trial will take place in Manchester, England, and is expected to last for 6 months.
