Lucy Letby: police found note saying I killed them on purpose, court hears

A nurse accused of murdering seven babies in a hospital neonatal unit wrote: "I killed them on purpose because I'm not good enough to care for them," a court has heard.

The trial of Lucy Letby was told on Thursday that police had recovered several handwritten documents from her home after her arrest in July 2018. On one note shown to the jury, headlined "Not good enough," she wrote: "I will never have children or marry. I will never know what it's like to have a family" and "I can't breathe."

On another, she wrote "I am a horrible evil person" and on another in capital letters: "I AM EVIL I DID THIS," the jury was told.

The 32-year-old is accused of murdering seven newborns - including two brothers from a set of triplets - over the course of a year at the Countess of Chester hospital.

She allegedly tried to kill 10 others by injecting them with air, milk or insulin between June 2015 and June 2016. Letby denies all 22 charges.

Letby was eventually removed from the neonatal ward in June 2016 - four months after a senior doctor had started to connect her to unexplained deaths and collapses, the trial has heard. In that four-month period she is alleged to have murdered two brothers from a set of triplets and to have attempted to kill five other babies.

Day four of the trial at Manchester crown court heard how police recovered notes that included "many protestations of innocence" when they arrested Letby at home in Chester on 3 July 2018.
