Stepping Hill nurse Victorino Chua guilty of murdering patients

A nurse has been convicted of murdering two patients and poisoning 20 others at a Greater Manchester hospital.

Victorino Chua killed Tracey Arden, 44, and Derek Weaver, 83, at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport by injecting insulin into saline bags and ampoules. These were then unwittingly used by other hospital nurses on Chua’s victims, who were mostly elderly. The father-of-two, 49, who was cleared of a third murder charge, left one patient with a serious brain injury.

Greater Manchester Police say the investigation which led to Victorino Chua’s arrest and conviction was one of the the biggest and most complex it has ever carried out.Officers flew to Chua’s native Philippines, where their investigations cast serious doubt over his medical qualifications.
