German serial killer nurse jailed for life

(CNN)A German serial killer nurse was jailed for life on Thursday for the murder of 85 patients in his care, according to a statement from a court in the northwest city of Oldenburg.

Niels Hoegel, a 42-year-old former nurse who is considered Germany’s deadliest post-war serial killer, was sentenced to life in prison at the District Court of Oldenburg.
While summing up the trial, the judge said Hoegel’s actions were “incomprehensible: That’s the word that characterizes this.”
