    FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- A former hospital nurse pleaded no contest Tuesday to killing 10 patients nearly six years ago by injecting them with a drug used to temporarily halt breathing.

    Vickie Dawn Jackson, 40, will be sentenced to life in prison, the maximum sentence she faced if she had been convicted by a jury.

    Authorities have not offered a motive for the slayings.

    She was stupid to throw away a syringe with traces of the drug in her garbage.

    i would suggest having the power of killing was her motive.

    these people were smothered alive, forced to wait and die as their diaphragm just wouldn't move to take in air. The drug she used paralyzes the muscles, it doesn't make you stop breathing. You stop breathing because your muscles won't work to move your lungs in and out.They were awake and fully aware of everything that was happening if they were capable of being awake and aware. This is just aweful. what a sadist.:(

    Now i realise it's even more horrifying than i first imagined! :eek:

    under the circumstances, a jury would have stuck the DP on her, wouldn't it.

    This is horrible and sad. I wish I could be as good as the Amish and find forgiveness in my heart for people like this woman.


    There are some crazy (not to mention "ignorant") health professionals out there----my hubby can tell you horror stories since he works in a hospital. Which is exactly another reason why whenever one of my kids has had to be hospitalized, I have stayed day and night with them. One daughter was in the hospital for 7 weeks (rare heart thing) and I literally lived there. I taught myself as much as I could about proper procedures and was very vigilant that everything was done by protocol. I caught one nurse injecting her IV lines without cleaning the ports first and I promptly went to the head nurse and made sure that that nurse never entered my daughters room again,,,,and she didn't. If that nurse would be so careless about a simple protocol, what else would she have been slack about??????
