Disgraced nurse Elizabeth Wettlaufer, who’s facing 8 counts of murder, will appear in a Woodstock Courtroom today to set a date for her trial.
Wettlaufer is accused of killing 8 people at nursing homes in Woodstock and in London and is facing attempted murder and aggravated assault in 6 other cases.
Police allege Wettlaufer drugged her patients most from Caressant Care in Woodstock and one from Meadow Park Long-Term Care in London over a seven-year period.
Police documents paint the former nurse as a mentally unstable addict with a poor job performance that included a firing from the Woodstock facility for medication infractions, including some with insulin.
