She is known as one of the most notorious serial killers of England. Also called the ‘Angel of Death’, she was a nurse who worked at the Grantham Hospital in Lincolnshire. Though her motives are still not clear, it has been stated that she suffers from a psychiatric disorder known as Munchausen’s syndrome by proxy, which can lead to the desire to murder or cause harm to others with the intent to gain attention. She committed her crimes over a period of 59 days between February and April 1991 in the children’s ward of the hospital where she worked. Her trial judge recommended that she be sentenced to a minimum term of 40 years; she was eventually sentenced to 30.
