Nurse Lucy Letby wrote sympathy card to parents of baby she had 'murdered' hours before, trial hears | The Sun

NURSE Lucy Letby wrote a chilling sympathy card to the grieving parents of a baby girl she allegedly murdered, her trial heard.

The defendant took a photograph on her mobile phone of the card ahead of the youngster's funeral.

Letby, 33, is accused of killing the premature-born infant, known as Child I, in the early hours of October 23 2015, which the Crown say was the fourth attempt to take her life.

On Thursday, Manchester Crown Court was told Letby captured a photograph of the card on the morning of November 10 after she finished a night shift – hours before Child I's funeral.

She wrote: "There are no words to make this time any easier.

"It was a real priviledge (sic) to care for (Child I) and get to know you as a family – a family who always put (Child I) first and did everything possible for her.
