'The voices in my head did it': Texas Killer nurse confessed to killing DOZENS of children, prosecutors claim as they try to block her early release
During Jones' time working at a San Antonio hospital and elsewhere in Texas, children died of unexplained seizures and other complications, causing fellow nurses to call her hours on duty 'the Death Shift'.
The new charges involve the deaths of four boys and one girl who ranged in age from three months to three years. They died between July 1981 and January 1982.
The first charge Jones will be tried for is for the death of 11-month-old Joshua Sawyer.
The boy died of a fatal overdose of an anti-seizure drug, Dilantin, and prosecutors at Jones' 1984 murder trial said the nurse lethally injected children at a clinic in Kerrville, northwest of San Antonio, to demonstrate the need for a pediatric intensive care unit at a nearby hospital.
