Cologne (dpa / lnw) - In the complex surrounding the so-called thallium murders, the baby of one of the poisoned women did not die from the poison, according to reports. The forensic expert came to the conclusion that the cause of death may have been sudden infant death, said a spokesman for the Cologne district court on Tuesday when asked. This does not change the allegation of the prosecution. The "Express" had previously reported.
The trial against the nurse began on Monday. He himself is silent on the allegations. The 41-year-old has to answer to the Cologne district court for double murder, attempted murder and attempted abortion. In 2020 and 2021 he is said to have poisoned three women with thallium, which had previously been used as a rat poison.
