The new indictment against Niels Hoegel was expected after officials said in November that he may have killed more than 100 patients in total. He worked at a clinic in Oldenburg from 1999 to 2002 and in nearby Delmenhorst from 2003 to 2005.

  1. It’s sad how a nurse, who supposedly takes oath to save lives and help people, actually takes lives and enjoys this act so much that loses all sense. He didn’t even think about their families or the repercussions of his actions let alone dealing with guilt. Now there is a narcissistic serial killer, at least he’s not Muslim. Or this would’ve been turned into a terrorist act.
