The biggest serial murder trial of the German post-war history comes to an end: 97 murders, the indictment accuses the former nurse Högel. However, on the last Day of the trial, many questions remain.
24 court days, over seven months, took the process against Niels Högel - now he stands before the conclusion. 97 deaths, the public Prosecutor's office accuses the former nurse. Between 34 and 96 years of age, his alleged victims were.
Högel grants to 43 him for the offences of a few, he denies vehemently, with dozens of other, it is not can not remember - but to have the patient killed. Because the exhumation of fire bestatteter bodies is not possible, could the number of victims is even higher. Due to the death of six patients Högel was already condemned to life imprisonment.
But just how many people he's poisoned, it is unclear, but also how many of these deaths could have been prevented. Also after the last Day of the trial, many questions remain. Why has it not been stopped by the nurse earlier? What the colleagues knew? Tried to superiors, suspicion iron?
