FACTFILE

Monday 3rd March 2008,. A jury found Colin Norris guilty of 4 murders, and one of attempted murder. The jury at Newcastle crown court recorded their 11 -1 majority verdict.

Tuesday 4 March 2008. Norris jailed for life with a recommendation he serve a minimum of 30 years. Jailing him for life, Mr Justice Griffith Williams said: "You are, I have absolutely no doubt, a thoroughly evil and dangerous man."

Over the course of the five month trial the court had heard that Norris killed the "confused" and "difficult" patients during his time working at the two Leeds hospitals in 2002.

The trial was told that suspicions were raised when Norris predicted the death of Ethel Hall, a patient who later slipped into a fatal coma. All the  killings took place at Leeds General Infirmary or St James's Hospital.

"Whenever I did nights someone always died", he said.

Mrs Hall slipped into a hypoglycaemic coma that night and never recovered.

Norris told colleagues "I told you so" when her slumped body was found. She died in hospital a week later.

Police investigating the death found that three other women, none of them diabetics, had died from insulin overdoses during his shifts at the hospitals.

Norris had denied killing the four women at Leeds General Infirmary and St James's Hospital in 2002 by injecting them with insulin, claiming he was unlucky to have patients die while he was on duty.

Beverly Allitt - killed at least 4
