Life Term in 9 Hospital Killings

November 02, 1987|Associated Press

LONDON, Ky. — Former nurse's aide Donald Harvey, who has confessed to killing dozens of patients at hospitals in Ohio and Kentucky, pleaded guilty today to slaying nine patients at a London hospital and was sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years.

His Kentucky sentence, handed down by Circuit Judge Lewis Hopper, will run concurrently with life terms he received in Ohio. Harvey was indicted with eight counts of murder and one count of manslaughter, although he told prosecutors that he had killed 13 people at Marymount Hospital in 1970 and 1971.
