She was handed a whole-life order, becoming only the fourth women in UK history to receive such a sentence.
Whole-life orders are th most severe punishment available in the country’s criminal justice system and are reserved for those who commit the most heinous crimes.
The killer nurse, branded “evil” and a “coward” by her victims’ parents, refused to appear for her Sentencing hearing. But judge Mr Justice Goss said he’d pass sentence at Manchester Crown Court as if she were present before him.
He told the serial killer: “There was premeditation, calculation and cunning in your actions. Loving parents have been robbed of their cherished children. You have caused deep psychological trauma.”
In his address, which will be printed and given to Letby, the judge continued: “You acted in a way that was completely contrary to the normal human instincts of nurturing and caring for babies and in gross breach of the trust that all citizens place in those who work in the medical and caring professions.”
