A former nurse at a hospital in Yokohama pleaded guilty Friday to serial murders at a hospital in 2016.

At the first hearing in a lay-judge trial at Yokohama District Court, Ayumi Kuboki, 34, admitted to killing two 88-year-old men and a 78-year-old woman who were hospitalized at former Oguchi Hospital in the capital of Kanagawa from between Sept.15-19, 2016. The killings were carried out by injecting antiseptic into the patients’ intravenous drip bags, effectively poisoning them.
