Sentencing hearing today for ex-nurse serial killer Elizabeth Wettlaufer

27 June 2017

"Without her confessions, I'm convinced this offender never would have been brought to justice", Thomas said in his 20-minute decision that accepted a joint sentencing position proposed by the Crown and the defence - life with no chance of parole for 25 years for eight counts of first-degree murder, 10 years for the four attempted murders and seven years for two aggravated assaults, all to be served at the same time.

Wettlaufer has admitted to injecting patients with insulin with the intent to kill them, in 14 cases that stretched from 2007 to 2016.

Wettlaufer stopped nursing, the court heard, after she was transferred to a new job where she would be working with diabetic children, claiming she did not trust herself in the situation.

When delivering his verdict, the judge said that Wettlaufer described a feeling of "euphoria" from killing the patients, and that "far from an angel of mercy" she was instead a "shadow of death that passed over them", Canada's national broadcaster CBC reports. Wettlaufer will not be given a chance of parole for 25 years. Her crimes began in 2007 and didn't stop until she confessed to the killings at a psychiatric hospital in Toronto last fall.

Debora Rivers said her grandmother, Mary Zarawinski, hated the nursing home when she first went there.

During a brief statement to the court, Wettlaufer apologized to her victims and their families for the grief she caused.

"If the serial killer who took my grandma's life had not had open access to her murder weapon of choice, at least eight people may not have been sent to a painful, tormented, and untimely death", Shannon Emmerton said in a statement to Postmedia.

"Psychologically I feel a great deal of pain and guilt", he told the court. She was 68 at the time.

"Sorry is much too small a word", she said flatly, under the watchful eye of the families, while she stood in the prisoner's box.

But the granddaughter of another victim, Gladys Millard, said she doesn't have any interest in a long and drawn-out public inquiry that would sap taxpayer dollars.

The judge and prosecutors noted that Wettlaufer's crimes may never have been revealed if she had not come forward.

"I don't really want to hear from her".

Maurice Granat's friend, Laura Jackson, called him one of the "best people I knew" in her statement to the court.

"It is our hope that through the inquiry process, we will get the answers we need to help ensure a tragedy such as this does not happen again", Attorney General Yasir Naqvi and Health Minister Eric Hoskins said in a statement Monday.
