Wettlaufer appears in court, no trial date set


A former Ontario nurse accused of killing eight seniors made a brief court appearance in Woodstock, Ont. on Friday.

Elizabeth Wettlaufer, 49, is scheduled to appear in court via video link on May 12.

No trial date has been set in the case.

Wettlaufer waived her right to a preliminary hearing during her last court appearance earlier this month.

In October, Wettlaufer was charged with eight counts of first-degree murder.

She was also charged with an additional four counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault in January.

Police allege Wettlaufer fatally injected drugs into seniors in her care at nursing homes in Woodstock and London, Ont.
