Serial killer nurse who enjoyed injecting patients with air 'for fun' sentenced to death



A serial killer nurse who killed patients by injecting them with air “for fun” has been sentenced to death in Texas.



The former nurse at CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances in Tyler who was charged with killing multiple patients back in 2017 and 2018, was sentenced to death by a Smith County jury.



37-year-old Davis who worked in the hospital’s cardiovascular ICU wing was found guilty on October 19 by a jury, of injecting air into Christopher Greenaway, 47; Jose Kalina, 58; Ronald Clark, 68; and John Lafferty, 74.



The court heard that doctors were puzzled how the patients became more ill after surgery and scans showed air in their brains, reported the New York Times.



The case which was beset for years with delays from the pandemic, changes in attorneys and other reasons, was prosecuted by Smith County District Attorney Jacob Putman who inherited the case after his contested election in 2018. It has been arguably the most high-profile trial East Texas has seen in at least a decade.
