A former nurse has admitted killing six of her patients to ease her workload.

Vera Maresova, 50, dubbed ‘Nurse Death’ in local media, worked at a hospital in the small town of Rumburk, Czech Republic, where over a four year period she gave deadly doses of potassium to five women and one man.

Maresova was initially arrested last August in connection with the death of a 70-year-old woman who was poisoned.

She has now reportedly admitted killing five more people between 2010 and 2014 following a police investigation.

A police spokesman said: "All of her victims were elderly and needed intensive treatment.

"The woman who was supposed to care for them but instead killed them because she wanted to make life easier for herself.

"The terrible number of victims is six.

"We do not suspect the nurse committed any more murders."

Maresova injected the overdose straight into the elderly patients’ blood stream, according to the prosecution,

All were in the hospital's intensive care unit.

Prosecutor Frantisek Stibor said: "She is not insane and knew exactly what she was doing. Therefore she is fit to stand trial.

"She used her knowledge of medicine to cause malfunctions in heart rhythms which led to heart failure and death."

The first alleged murder was in January 2010 and was followed by another at the end of 2011.

In April 2012 she is said to have killed her third victim and three more between February and June 2014.

She now faces life in prison.
