A NURSE accused of murdering seven babies and trying to kill ten others has today denied fresh attempted murder charges.
Lucy Letby, 32, was arrested after a three-year probe into the deaths at the Countess of Chester Hospital's neonatal unit.
The nurse murdered five boys and two girls in a year-long killing spree, it is alleged.
She is also charged with the attempted murder of another five boys and five girls.
Letby today denied five more attempted murder counts relating to the existing alleged victims.
