Nurse goes on trial in Germany over 100 patient deaths

Culprit's choice of victim appears to have been entirely random, with their ages ranging from 34 to 96.

"We will do our utmost to learn the truth", he said.

A German nurse has admitted murdering more than 100 patients with toxic doses of drugs in what is thought to be the worst killing spree in the country's modern history.

Hoegel appears to have followed a similar procedure each time, first injecting a medication that triggered cardiac arrest, and then stepping in to resuscitate them.

"The prosecutor's office assumes that he did this in order to create a life-threatening situation in order to demonstrate his resuscitation skills to colleagues and superiors", the indictment states, according to DW.

Red Dead Redemption 2 also beat its biggest rival, Activision Blizzard's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 . Red Dead Redemption 2 offers a vast world to explore with more than 60 hours of content.

Hoegel, who is already serving a life term, has confessed to dozens of killings.

Asked by the judge why he didn't admit to the remaining murders before now, Hoegel said it was "out of shame" and because it took him a long time to face up to what he had done at the first hospital.

According to reports, police said Hoegel may have killed more but the true number of victims may never be known because many patients who died at his hands were cremated.

The Agency notes that if Hegel is found guilty in the murder of 100 people, it will become one of the most brutal serial killers in post-war Germany. "It is like a house with dark rooms - we want to bring light into the darkness".

His trial in the northwestern city of Oldenburg began with a minute of silence for the patients.

Around 126 relatives will be co-plaintiffs in the new trial and are expected to fill the specially designated courtroom in Oldenburg, along with about 80 journalists. In 2008, he was jailed for seven years for attempted murder.

In past hearings, Hoegel said he felt euphoric when he managed to bring a patient back to life, and devastated when he failed.

Additional convictions could make it harder for Hoegel to get parole.

"Without the mistakes of some people in Oldenburg. this series of murders by Niels Hoegel could have been stopped", said Christian Marbach, whose grandfather was one of the victims in Delmenhorst.
